BeIN Sports has claimed that Monaco have agreed to sell Radamel Falcao to Real Madrid ahead of next season, which will save Liverpool and Manchester City a whole lot of stress this summer.
Falcao will reportedly become the high profile attacking signing that Real boss Carlo Ancelotti and president Florentino Perez seem to have craved, which has created ridiculous speculation within the Premier League.
There has been talk over a move for Luis Suarez and Liverpool and Sergio Aguero of Manchester City, but Monaco have done Brendan Rodgers and Manuel Pellegrini a big favour by taking the stress and pressure of those rumours away.
Aguero is arguably City’s most important player and the Argentine has won two Premier League titles in three years. He’s tasted success at the club and City have made it clear they’re going for the Champions League next season.
The recent speculation surrounding Suarez at Liverpool has been ridiculous and confusing in its logic.
Suarez is Liverpool’s most important attacking player and someone who has said numerous times that he wants to experience Champions League football playing at Anfield.
He’s been presented with that chance and with no high profile striker signing in site, there is no doubt that Suarez will start every game he’s fit for the Reds next season.
Rather than having to fend off needless and pointless questions relating to Suarez’ future, Rodgers can now concentrate on the systems and tactics he’s going to use next season.
Teams will come up with new ways to keep Suarez, and Daniel Sturridge quiet, so it’s important for the Anfield boss to be able to focus on how he can keep SAS effective leading up to the new campaign.
Pellegrini is in a similar situation with Aguero though City’s attack is arguably more flexible than Liverpool’s with the number of options the Chilean has at his disposal
He has to balance when and where to use Aguero next season, with a high number of matches piled up and sides who will be rough and physical as they look to stop the striker from getting into matches.
Falcao’s move to Real Madrid removes the pointless routine of Los Blancos sniffing around two players who were never going to leave. Time for all concerned to move on.
