Falcao: I am not thinking about a transfer
The Colombia international has set his sights on winning trophies with his current club rather than considering his options amid interest from some of Europe's heavyweightsRadamel Falcao has again insisted he is not thinking about leaving Atletico Madrid and says his sole focus is lifting silverware at the Vicente Calderon.
The striker has been linked with clubs such as Chelsea and Real Madrid over the past few months, but even though he can see himself playing in another league at some point in the future, he says that is not at the forefront of his mind at present.
"I’m really at home with Atletico and I’m still under contract here," the Colombia international was quoted as saying by Fifa.com.
"I’m sure that I’ll taste life in another league at some point in my career, but right now I’m only thinking about my club, in growing as a player and doing my bit to help us keep winning trophies."
The 26-year-old also had his say on the title race in La Liga, and admitted that Atletico are in for a tough task if they are to leapfrog leaders Barcelona.
"We’re aware that it’ll be tough to claw back the lead Barcelona have, though as long as there’s still a mathematical chance we’ll keep on fighting," he added.
"Our main objective is securing a place in the Champions League. We’re very clear on that.
"It’s hard to compete because of the budget some of Spain’s most powerful teams have. They’ve got the best players in the world, while we’re just gradually growing stronger as a team."
Los Rojiblancos currently sit second in the Liga table, trailing Barcelona by eight points.
