Falcao says goodbye to Atletico

Madrid: Radamel Falcao said that his stay at Atletico Madrid since joining Porto has been "like a dream".

The Colombia forward is set to complete a €60 million switch to Monaco this summer, having helped the capital club win the Europa League, the European Super Cup and the Copa del Rey in a two-year spell.

Falcao is expected in the Principality this week for a medical ahead of completing the deal.

"I`m very grateful for these two years at Atletico Madrid," the 27-year-old told W Radio.

"I never expected to win three titles in so short time, this has been like a dream. Yesterday I lived a very emotional moment I had never lived before with the fans and a club.

"I will never forget it and I don`t know how to give them thanks."

However, Falcao refused to confirm that he would leave the club in the summer: "Right now, I can`t talk about my future, there will be time later."

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo also denied a deal for Falcao has been completed: "Falcao is yet Atletico`s player. He is going to play a match [against Zaragoza] and after we talk about his future."

Meanwhile, Colombia are set to play Argentina on June 8 as their bid to qualify for the World Cup continues and Falcao is confident his nation can prevail in the clash.

He said: "Colombia have a great team with the capability to play in any field, any time, against any rival but we need to be discreet and think about what can we do against Argentina."
