Atletico hint at Falcao exit

Atletico Madrid general manager Miguel Angel Gil Marin said the club would benefit from striker Radamel Falcao heading elsewhere.

The Spanish side are experiencing economic troubles, and with Falcao commanding a significant wage, Marin said maintaining the first team squad was proving difficult while the star striker remains at the club.

“The 60 million (Euros) for Falcao would solve all the economic problems at Atletico,” admitted Marin, speaking to COPE Radio.

“I can say for sure, though, he will stay with us until the end of the season. Not only will he stay, but so will all the players that the coach wants to stay.

“We will fight to perform a miracle which is what we are doing with what we have available.

Despite Real Madrid being rumoured as a potential suitor for the Colombian ace, Marin believes their prized asset may even be out of the La Liga champions’ price bracket.

He added: “If Atletico do not qualify for the Champions League or cannot afford to meet his wage demands then I do not think Real Madrid could afford him either.

“We have to do impossible things and take risks so that the fans can have the team that they want. It is difficult to maintain.”
