‘Liverpool interested, but he waits for Real Madrid’ - Spanish football expert on Falcao

Liverpool have been linked with Falcao of late, but he is said to be waiting for Real Madrid to move.

Liverpool are interested in bringing Monaco striker Radamel Falcao to Anfield, but the striker will first wait for an approach from Real Madrid, says Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.

Balague was involved in a Q&A via Twitter with Bleacher Report, and fuelled speculation surrounding a number of transfer topics, including Falcao to Liverpool.

Balague believes that Brendan Rodgers is interested in bringing Falcao to Liverpool this summer, but the Colombian striker will first wait to hear from Real Madrid.

His purchase from Monaco is subject to a deal being done for the want-away Angel Di Maria, who has been linked with both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United. Until the Argentine is sold, Madrid will not have the funds to try and lure Falcao.

Falcao is said to want to leave Monaco by Balague, despite several claims he is happy at the club over the last few weeks. It is however unclear as to whether he would be interested in a move to Liverpool, should the call from Madrid never arrive.

Liverpool desperately need an A-list striker to replace Luis Suarez, who left for Barcelona last month. But the stature of Real Madrid is likely to end the Reds interest, should they be able to sell Di Maria.
