‘Falcao Madrid’s missing piece’

Former Real Madrid defender Ricardo Carvalho believes Radamel Falcao would complete Los Blancos’ team if he leaves Moncao.

It’s been reported that the former Atletico Madrid striker is bound for Santiago Bernabeu this summer and Monaco defender Carvalho has told AS that Falcao would make Madrid’s front three the most dangerous there’s ever been.

“Everyone knows Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world and also the best professional,” Carvalho said.

“In terms of professionalism, Falcao is the player who is closest. He will have a very long career because he takes so much care.

“Cristiano, Gareth Bale and Falcao would be the most feared three-man attack in football history. But it’s better [for Monaco] that Falcao stays.

“I think Falcao is the missing piece to make the Madrid attack perfect. Cristiano is the best player in the world, Bale is very good and Falcao is the best striker there is.

“I’m a defender and I wouldn’t want to face them!”

Carvalho also discussed his situation, having been a regular in the Monaco side but missed out on a place in the Portugal squad at the World Cup.

“I think I’ve been at a high level but I’m sure next season will be even better and Monaco will surprise many people,” he predicted.

“[Not going to the World Cup] was the greatest sorrow of my career. I am very sad, and also sad about Portugal’s exit.”
