FIFA Fairplay? Anyone? Real Madrid have already spent crazy money this summer on James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Keylor Navas.
And with French star Karim Benzema signing a new contract, which will keep him at the club until 2019, you would have thought that further major signings would have to wait for a year or so.
But, such is the spending power of a club with the biggest turnover in world football, that Real Madrid may well be about to do it again.
This time it’s for the Colombian maestro Radamel Falcao. He was very unlucky to get injured at the turn of the year and missed out on The World Cup.
But he is apparently back to full fitness now and reports on Thursday afternoon suggest that he could well be on his way to Real Madrid. It may turn out to be a loan move for now. But, Madrid fans won’t care about the details if they can get this guy in to the club, because he’s an unbelievable footballer.
Highly respected English media outlet The Guardian reports:
Manchester City have also shown interest in the former Porto forward, with both Premier League clubs understood to be keen on a loan deal with an option for a permanent transfer. However, Falcao appears Real-bound.
Even though Barcelona also have a crazy looking front line this season it’s hard to imagine anyone coming close to a team which can boast a front four of Ronaldo, Rodriguez, Bale and Falcao. With the world-class Toni Kroos sitting in behind and pinging delicious balls to these guys it’s going to be football from the heavens – my mouth is actually watering as I type!
Falcao doesn’t just score at a prolific rate but also bags beautiful goals. Serious questions will be asked about the futures of Di Maria and even Benzema if Falcao does sign for Real Madrdid. But it’s a lovely problem to have.
Let’s see Falcao in action. Real fans: the best forward line ever?
