Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Colombia striker Radamel Falcao has no plans to leave Atletico Madrid, although he acknowledged Saturday he was filled with “pride” by talk that several of the world's top clubs are interested in signing him next year.
Falcao's 17 goals this season has been a key reason why Atletico Madrid has kept pace with Barcelona at the top of Spanish standings. His goal-scoring prowess also has sparked rumors that several big-spending clubs, including Chelsea and Manchester City, would try to sign him as soon as January.
But at a Dubai football conference, Falcao said he was “very happy” at Atletico and planned to see out his three-year contract. His only concern was finishing a successful season, adding that he “didn't know what would happen in the future.” – Sapa-AP
