Juanfran: We’ll find Falcao replacement

Atletico Madrid defender Juanfran is confident that the club will pick the right man to replace Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian forward left the capital club this summer to sign for French side Monaco, but the 28-year-old believes that the Rojiblancos will buy the correct striker, whilst also commenting on the upcoming season.

“We need someone with that extra quality that Falcao gave us,” he told reporters. “It is clear that the names being mentioned will do that.

“Negredo, Soldado, Villa are all great strikers.

“Hopefully we'll have a great season. The economy is Spain is difficult for teams other than Real Madrid and Barcelona.

“But we are convinced that things will work out well for us.

“I'm sure we're going to have a great season.”
