There is very little doubt that 27-year-old Colombian striker Radamel Falcao will generate a lot of interest over the summer. Falcao is already considered the most highly sought after striker in soccer, and he has drawn interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.

With two of Europe’s biggest squads in pursuit of Falcao, Sir Alex Ferguson had decided to jump in the mix and let Manchester United’s interest known.

There are rumors that Falcao could demand a $72 million bid from Man U over the summer. The Reds could also throw in Mexican international Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez as part of the deal after his recent struggles for the club.

This season for his Spanish club, Falcao has scored 28 goals in 33 appearances.There is no wonder why the world’s best clubs will be fighting for his services. 

At this point, there no one is for certain where Falcao will play his ball next season, but it seems all but certain that the Atletico Madrid striker will be leaving his current team for greener pastures.
