Falcao to discuss future in summer

Atletico Madrid general manager Miguel Angel Gil Marin has admitted there is an agreement with Radamel Falcao to discuss his future next summer.

The Colombian has been heavily linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderon from the end of last season, whilst the player himself has refused to categorically rule out a future transfer.

“He’s a great player. He is one of the best in the world and has now been awarded as such in Dubai [at the International Sports Conference]. By signing him when we did it was very high risk,” reflected Marin first of all to AS today.

“Thank God that it went well. People doubted him and the amount that we had paid. Our trust in him has been proven. We spoke with him before he came, we were right in the player, as a professional and as a person.

“What about his future? The commitment to him is that at the end of the season we will decide what is best for both parties and we will help him to decide, he has earned the right to decide.

“I know that he is comfortable in our League, in our city and in our club.”

Marin, who has previously hinted of the club’s requirement to do so, also briefly spoke of his belief in Atleti returning to qualifying for Champions League football at the end of this season.
