Manchester City and Chelsea 'target' Radamel Falcao hints at future in Italy
The Colombian international has been strongly linked with a move away from Atletico Madrid
A blistering 17 months for Atletico Madrid has seen Radamel Falcao emerge as the most sought after striker in the world.
The Colombian international has been most strongly linked with a switch to Chelsea, however their recent purchase of Demba Ba means any move would now seem unlikely before the summer.
The 26-year-old is also being courted by Manchester City and Real Madrid according to reports.
However, all of the aforementioned clubs may find their pursuit of the striker a frustrating one after Falcao revealed an interest in moving to Serie A.
"I cannot rule out a future in Italy. Juve or Milan? I have a favourite club, but I prefer not to say," he is quoted as saying.
Falcao currently leads Cristiano Ronaldo in this season's La Liga goalscoring charts with 17 so far this term. While interest in the striker is huge, he recently affirmed his commitment to seeing out this season with Atletico.
