Colombian striker Radamel Falcao will arrive at Real Madrid in the next winter transfer market, French media have claimed.
Carlo Ancelotti announced a few days ago that Los Blancos will not make any more signings this summer, and it could be true, despite claims that Florentino Perez would still be seeking a striker to replace Alvaro Morata, who is now at Juventus.
Los Merengues have spent more than 100 million euros this summer in bringing Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and Keylor Navas. The only way they could afford a new first-class signing would be finding a buyer for Angel di Maria and Sami Khedira, which seems more unlikely as the last day of the transfer market gets closer.
However, Real directors know there is only one pure striker in the squad -Karim Benzema- and they doubt they can face such a long season and fight for six competitions with just the Frenchman up front.
Thus, they are considering postponing the signing of a new striker until January, and French newspapers believe they are trying to convince Monaco about a winter Falcao move.
The Colombian is determined to play at the Santiago Bernabeu, and he knows he is Florentino Perez’s favourite for the job. Yet, his high price could make Los Blancos consider other options. Alvaro Negredo was also linked with Los Blancos, but his recent injury has ruined his chances of returning to Madrid.
