Radamel Falcao plays down Real Madrid speculation

Radamel Falcao quells suggestions that he could depart Monaco for Real Madrid.

Monaco forward Radamel Falcao has played down suggestions that he could join Real Madrid.

The 28-year-old, who is widely regarded as one of the best attackers in European football, scored 70 times in 91 matches during a two-year spell with Atletico Madrid from 2011.

The Colombian has also scored 11 times in 19 games for Monaco this season, but is currently nursing a serious knee injury, which the striker has insisted is his main focus.

"Fans I've spoken to in Madrid have been wishing me a swift recovery and say they hope I go to the World Cup," Falcao told reporters.

"Some people ask if I will join Real Madrid. I tell them my only concern is to recover soon. I am realistic, I am aware of my injury and I just want to recover to play with my new club, Monaco.

"I want to be ready for next season if we qualify for Champions League. Now I do not think about anything other than my knee getting better."

Falcao is still hopeful of making the World Cup this summer.
