Man City and Chelsea chasing Atletico Madrid striker

Atletico Madrid star Falcao´s father, Radamel, has revealed that Manchester City and Chelsea are interested in signing his client.

Falcao scored a hat-trick against Chelsea in the 4-1 victory in the European Super Cup on Firday night.

"There are three teams interested - Manchester City, Chelsea and a Russian team," said Falcao senior.

"Falcao has always wanted to play in the Premier League.

"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."

Reports have suggested that Falcao has agreed a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea.

"I don’t want to talk about any pre-agreements," added Radamel.

"I spoke to Falcao very briefly yesterday. The minimum release clause in his contract with Atletico Madrid is about 55million Euros, but Falcao doesn’t want to talk figures."
