Radamel Falcao believes that staying at Atletico Madrid would be the ‘best option’ for him.

The striker is hugely in-demand among the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid, if reports are to be believed.

However, this latest admittance from the Colombian attacker could scupper any plans for sides to bid for him in the summer.

The 27-year-old arrived at the La Liga club in 2011 from Porto, has continued to cement his status as one of the best forwards in the world, and hopes he can use his goals to help keep Atletico fighting for elite European football.

“I have a contract with Atletico for three more years, therefore, that’s the best option,” he told Mundo Deportivo.

“As a group we have the clear goal of qualifying for the Champions League. If we maintain the same level that we have showed, we will achieve our objectives.

“We are not thinking about either (Real) Madrid or Barcelona, we are focusing on what we can give and on our objectives.”

Atletico Madrid sit above Jose Mourinho’s men in the Spanish La Liga after 24 games with just Barca ahead of them, although Tito Vilanova’s side have a 12-point gap over the Rojiblancos.

The striker added: “I have come to one of the biggest clubs in Spain, in a very important league that is more well-known on the world stage than any of my previous clubs.

“It has allowed me to grow as a footballer, to become known in other parts of the world. It has been a very positive step.”
