At a press call on Wednesday, former Atletico Madrid hit-man Falcao told how whilst he was thankful for recent comments from Real Madrid President Florentino Perez, hes happy enough at Monaco. Theres nothing else I can say but to thank Florentino for his words, but I also have to respect my current club, Monaco, who have made me feel very happy here. Whilst the Real Madrid supremo has effectively ruled out a January transfer window move for Falcao, he wouldnt rule out the possibility of following up strong interest in the player, next summer. Almost as if the statement was prepared for him, Falcao then reiterated his commitment to Monaco, when pushed further for his thoughts on a possible move to Real Madrid. Im very happy and I dont think its an opportune time to speak about a possible interest from Real Madrid at this time, out of respect for the institution at which Im currently affiliated. Though publicly Falcao has continually declared his happiness with Monaco, rumours continue to persist that this isnt entirely the case, that he would rather return to the Spanish capital and thus, Real Madrid view and Florentino Perez remain keen to signal their own interests and lure the player to join them, next summer. Meanwhile, even though a new darling has emerge into the limelight at Atletico Madrid, fans will no doubt be cringing with horror, at the prospect of their former idol, joining their fierce city rivals.

Real Madrid is one of the best clubs in the world at counter attacking. Oddly enough, Los Blancos also struggle at defending the counter.

(Alberto Saiz / AP) Theres the idea of getting younger with roster moves and then theres what Real Madrid has done. Theyve signed 9-year-old Japanese prodigy Takuhiro Nakai, the kid whose nickname is Pipi. Pipi is billed as the new Cristiano and the new Messi in some quarters. Not that either of those guys is going away any time soon. Neither is 30 yet.
