The Colombian striker has said that although he does have personal ambitions to add to his medal collection, he is only thinking about competing for titles with his current club.

Radamel Falcao has reiterated his commitment to Atletico Madrid and believes he can win more trophies with the Spanish side.

The Colombian striker, who lifted the Europa League with Atleti last season, has had his future subjected to fierce speculation over the past six months with moves to clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea all being reported.

However, the former Porto forward has claimed that his thoughts are only with his current side as it launches a sustained push for La Liga.

“I have three years left on my contract at my club and I am happy and satisfied,” Falcao told reporters. “It is clear to us what we want, which is to qualify for the Champions League, but if we can fight for the title, then we will. We will continue fighting for the league while it remains a mathematical possibility. We know it is hard because Barcelona are having a faultless season.

“Obviously in sporting terms I have the ambition to continue to progress and do better than this season, to keep fighting at the top of the Spanish League, the Europa League and in the semifinals of a tournament like the Copa del Rey. I just think of Atletico.”

The 26-year-old also reflected on the seven-point lead his side has over fierce local rival Real Madrid, saying that while it is a good feeling to be above the club's illustrious neighbor, it is not Jose Mourinho’s side which dominates his team's thinking.

“We have a very good seven-point lead over our rivals, who in many years have been superior to us in terms of results," Falcao stated. “We wish to continue to maintain the distance, but it does not concern us if we are in front or behind.”
