Real Madrid: New Top Summer Target?
There has been a huge amount of talk about Luis Suarez joining either Real Madrid or Barcelona this summer.
If that is the case Real Madrid may still look to strengthen their forward line – and perhaps their alternative is already lined up.
Because the Spanish newspaper AS reportedly reckons that Real Madrid are now keen on Radamel Falcao of Monaco.
Spanish newspaper AS claim that clubs have all made enquires for the Columbian this summer.
The Columbian striker, who is currently not at the World Cup due to injury, has rejected the chance to play in England as he keen to join European champions Real Madrid this summer.
Falcao only just missed out on The World Cup having seriously injured himself playing for the French club.
This could of course just be hollow transfer speculation but there is rarely smoke without fire in these situations and Real Madrid would probably be keen on a player of this quality if he was available – and perhaps even if he wasn’t!
While Karim Benzema has had another good season at Real Madrid there is a feeling that the number 9 position could be improved and Falcao is one of the few who could possibly better Madrid’s front line.
The Colombian is about as explosive and deadly as strikers come. It’s a massive shame that he wasn’t at The World Cup this summer but he will be perfectly fit by August and may just have a new club.
Let’s take a look at him in action. Real Madrid fans: Would you rather have Falcao or Benzema?
