Radamel Garcia, father of Radamel Falcao, has once again risked upsetting Atletico Madrid fans by reaffirming that his son dreams of playing for rivals Real Madrid.
Radamel Senior told Colombian radio station Todelar on Wednesday that his son had his heart set on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, and would look to pursue a move at the end of the current season.
The striker, who scored a hat-trick in Atletico’s 4-1 Super Cup victory over Chelsea last Friday, was then moved to pledge his commitment to the Vicente Calderon outfit on Twitter.
However, speaking to Colombian radio station Antena 2, his father again confirmed his son’s desire to wear the Blancos jersey.
“Saying my son wants to play for Real Madrid is not a sin. He always wants to play in the best teams in the world. The next club is for him to decide,” he said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Goal.com exclusively revealed that Manchester City lead the race to sign the €60 million-rated former Porto hit man, something that was alluded to in Radamel Senior’s original comments.
“His dream has always been to play for Real Madrid, even though clubs like Manchester City and Chelsea have shown an interest,” he had said.
