Atleti want to keep Falcao; Real would sell Ronaldo for €200 million

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has insisted that he wants to keep in-form striker Radamel Falcao Garcia at the Estadio Vicente Calderón, Sky Sports understands.

Radamel Enrique García King, Falcao’s father, stirred up a bit of controversy after revealing that his son has always wanted to play for European giants Real Madrid, who happen to be Atleti’s bitter inner-city rivals, earlier this month.

“My son’s dream is Real Madrid. Since he was little he has always wanted to play for Real Madrid,” revealed Radamel Enrique García King.

In response, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo told AS:

“I want to keep Falcao in the squad. For us, the Colombian is a reference point on the pitch and today he is key for Atletico.

“I prefer not to comment on any controversy with his father. Atletico is only interested in the footballer.”

Falcao, who is also attracting interest from Chelsea and Manchester City, has already bagged nine goals in nine appearances for club and country this season.

To complicate things further, Falcao Senior has also made it clear that his son would welcome a move to the English Premier League.

“Falcao has always wanted to play in the Premier League,” insisted Falcao Senior.

“Ever since he was a boy he has loved Chelsea and has always thought it would be an honour to play for a big Premier League team.”

The Colombia international joined Atleti from FC Porto for a reported fee of €40 million in August 2011, and currently has a €55 million release clause in his current contract.

Despite club president Enrique Cerezo’s recent revelation, Los Colchoneros may offload their star striker in January amid reports that the Europa League winners have violated the rules of Financial Fair Play, according to UEFA.

Do you think Falcao will finish the 2012-13 season at the Estadio Vicente Calderón?

Real would sell Ronaldo for €200 million

According to, Real Madrid would be open to selling Portugal international winger Cristiano Ronaldo for a record fee of €200 million despite his €1 billion buy-out clause.

Ronaldo joined Los Blancos for a world record transfer fee of £80 million from Manchester United in June 2009, and has since tallied more goals than games played for the Spanish giants in each of the past two seasons.

The 27-year-old is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most complete footballer on the planet, and will subsequently attract interest from the wealthiest clubs across Europe.

Now then, do you think Ronaldo will see through his contract at Real Madrid?

I can’t wait to see where Ronaldo will be if he left Madrid I think it will be a superb transfer


I would say that your statement of Ronaldo as the most complete footballer in the world is spot on.
That statement shows that he should have gotten world footballer of the year, but that the lack of glory on the international stage was his downfall, which is unfortunate.

Yes, best footballer without a doubt. If he did, i couldnt think of a replacement for Madrid. The only clubs that would be able to afford him would be Man City, PSG, Barcelona, or Milan. when he does move, the football world will completly change!


sure Todd comment is very fucking stupid,idiot,cr7 has a fifa world cup and messi dosent,u tell me moron


@CR7 I don’t know how Ronaldo could have won a world cup without Portugal ever winning a world cup in their history…


The writer of this article opinion about CR7 being the most complete footballer in the world is utterly biased. He is a very good player (with a shitty attitude).

And he is way behind Lionel Messi who is the real best player in the world. The single one advantage that CR7 has over Messi is the difference in height which lets him reach to higher altitude inside the penalty box area for aerial head play.

In all other aspects Messi beats him hands down.


CR7, do your homework. Ronaldo hasn’t won a WC.
Perhaps the author meant Ronaldo was more complete when it came to scoring goals, given he is more of a threat in the aerial game than Messi is, MSwhip. Maybe that’s what he was trying to say. Not sure myself.

How did this ‘navigate’ to CR7 vs. Messi? Wel, cnt stop it now… @ MSwhip, perhaps u shud read about the meaning of ‘completeness’. Nobody here is speaking about ‘the best player in the world’! Which, just so u know is not Leo Messi – fact, not opinion. Best would mean unbeatable… Nobody is unbeatable, and thus ‘best’ is ‘best’ used in a subjective manner. It would be a shame 4 Madrid. Bt Imagine Zlatan and Cristiano in the same team! Ibrahimovich may be getting old, but he’s one of the few true strikers in the game right now. Ronaldo… Read more »
