Chelsea target Ramadel Falcao has distanced himself from speculation regarding a move from Atletico Madrid to Stamford Bridge, insisting “the last thing I’m thinking about right now is a transfer.”
The Colombian forward has been in scintillating form this season, scoring 13 goals in 11 appearances for Los Rojiblancos, including a hat-trick against the Blues.
“The last thing I’m thinking about right now is a transfer,” he told reporters.
“I have a contract with Atletico Madrid and I’m focused on my team.”
Falcao has made no secret of his desire to move abroad, telling Radio Caracol: “The chance of playing in another league and for another club will come. I keep dreaming.”
Goal.com exclusively revealed Chelsea and Atletico have opened up talks over a potential £48.1million (€59.8m) January move for the sought-after striker, who hit 25 goals in the Spanish league last season.
The forward featured in Colombia’s 1-1 draw with Brazil in New Jersey on Wednesday night, and stated his international side can learn a lot by playing against a side of the Selecao’s ability.
He added: “It was a very good game. We expected a great Brazilian team and we found it like that. They made it difficult for us to have possession of the ball the way we like it. We learned a lot from today.
“I expected a strong game from the defence and I had to fight to touch the ball because they are very strong defenders.”
