‘Inappropriate to discuss Madrid’

Radamel Falcao says he is grateful for Florentino Perez’s words this week, but says now is not the time to talk of a possible move to Real Madrid.

Los Blancos’ President recently commented that his club could move for the former Atletico Madrid man next summer and that ‘he would want to play at Madrid’.

Asked for his response, the Colombian international has looked to play down the speculation.

“There is nothing more that I can do but thank Florentino for his words, but I have to respect my current club Monaco, who have made me feel great,” Falcao commented to reporters this week.

“I am very happy and it does not seem appropriate to talk about possible interest from Real Madrid at this time out of respect for the institution to which I am affiliated today.”
