Regarded as one of the best strikers in the world right now, Radamel Falcao made the £50 million switch to French club Monaco only in the summer. He was a long-term target for several big clubs across Europe like Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City. It was certainly confusing to see the 27-year-old elect a move to France at the prime of his career.
Six games into the 2013 La Liga season, and the top of the table seems about right. Barcelona have won all six of their matches with a goal difference of +17, while right behind them are Atletico Madrid with six wins and a +13 goal difference.
Real Madrid have gotten off to another slow start in La Liga.
Real Madrid fans hope to see the club spend the £42.4million raised from the sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal on AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, rather than Liverpool hitman Luis Suarez, reports the Daily Express. According to a poll by Spanish newspaper Marca, supporters of the Primera Division giants would prefer to see Carlo Ancelotti swoop for the Colombian international, when the transfer window reopens in January.
Real Madrid will use the cash they pocketed from Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil to bring either Luis Suarez or Radamel Falcao to the club in January, according to reports in the Spanish media. You could be forgiven for thinking that £42.4m was already spoken for given the world record signing of Gareth Bale, but not [.

Gonzalo Higuain looked set to go to the Emirates and join Arsenal, but the transfer stalled and he eventually agreed a big transfer to Napoli.

Early moves for Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao ensured their futures would be in France, while recent deals for Roberto Soldado and Gonzalo Higuain have been finalized to bring them to their new clubs.
A tie at home against Chile was enough for Colombia to qualify for their first World Cup since 1998.
