Radamel Garcia King has said that his son, Los Rojiblancos star Falcao, has always dreamt of playing for fierce rivals Real Madrid.
The news comes after Goal.com revealed on Wednesday that Manchester City and Chelsea are both hoping to sign the Colombian star, who has a €60m release clause in his contract, when the transfer window re-opens in January.
The father of the 26-year-old believes, however, that his son’s first choice would be to play for the Spanish champions.
“His dream is to one day play for Real Madrid,” Radamel Garcia told Colombian radio programme El Gran Debate de Todelar. “Always, since childhood, he has wanted to play there.”
Garcia also admitted that were a move to to Los Blancos fail to come to fruition, the Premier League would be his son’s next choice.
“Other international football teams like Manchester City and Chelsea have been interested in him. If he cannot go to Madrid, then he would go to English football,” said Garcia.
Garcia went on to say that he did not believe his son would remain at Atletico in the long term.
“Above all, he wants to go to Madrid. He will change his team at the end of the season,”said Garcia, adding that he had not even known whether his son would be sold or not prior to Atletico’s Super Cup victory over Chelsea.
