Ready for Radamel? Coral review where Falcao could move to
With Manchester United deciding not to following up their interest in Radamel Falcao, who they had on loan last season, Coral investigate which club he could go to next, whether on a permanent or temporary basis.
The striker has endured a frustrating year, with most of his energies dedicated to recovering from a knee injury and with more time, he can get back to his best, as Theo Walcott is starting to do at Arsenal after a similar grievance.
We take a look at which clubs are said to be leading the race for the player’s signature, with the Colombian still in demand.
A move back to La Liga might be too big a draw to turn down, and Valencia are a club with ambition, and money with Peter Lim in charge.
Linking up with young Spanish starlet Paco Alcacer could prove to be an exciting proposition, which could lead to a fruitful partnership.
Should Falcao make the move to the Turin titans, it could signal the end of big Basque target man Fernando Llorente’s future at the Italian outfit.
If Carlos Tevez stays, the partnership between the two could be lethal, and then there is also Alvaro Morata, with the potential for all three to feature in a three pronged attack, if the Old Lady reshuffles her pack in the summer.
This is a move that makes sense. The Stamford Bridge medical team are world class, and they will know exactly how to treat the Colombian in his comeback from injury.
Also, there would be no rush to bring him back, as the Blues have Diego Costa and Loic Remy on their roster as well to ease the attacking burden.
Atletico Madrid: 10/1
Moving back to the club where he really made his mark, would see him follow in the footsteps of Fernando Torres, who recently re-joined Atleti.
With the future of Mario Mandzukic uncertain, Diego Simeone could certainly make space for him, if the Croatian striker moves.
