Despite all the efforts made by the management of Blue Crossfinally the Colombian Radamel Falcao García will not become the striker they need so much on his way to get back into orbit to raid a Liga MX champion’s trophy.
The player himself was convinced of the project presented to him by ‘La Máquina’, currently directed by Raúl ‘Potro’ Gutiérrez, and tried to convince the leaders of Rayo Vallecano, however, the Spanish La Liga team is not in the process of losing its forward facing the end of the season.
Faced with the impossibility of getting a level attacker during the hiring market that is already closing, after the slams of Luis Suárez and Enner Valencia, in La Noria they are convinced that with the current squad they can compete and stay in the top positions without the arrival of Falcao.
The offensive props of Cruz Azul will thus be Michael Estrada, Gonzalo Carneiro and Iván Morales. The Mexican newspaper Record reported that the board will go for Falcao, 36, at the end of the season when he is free from a contract in Spain.
Radamel Falcao, the whim of 300 goals for Cruz Azul
Although his best physical moment is in the past, ‘El Tigre’ retains a lot of international hierarchy for what he has done throughout his careerfirst at River Plate in Argentina, passing through Porto (Portugal), Atlético de Madrid (Spain), Monaco (France), Manchester United and Chelsea (England), Galatasaray (Turkey) and his current club, Rayo Vallecano, back to La Liga.
They are more than 300 goals from Falcao as a professional throughout his professional career, including with the Colombian National Team, which he led countless times and with which he unfortunately was unable to play in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after completing a number of ecstatic qualifying rounds.
As for titles in the clubs he has been in, he accumulates 12, in addition to almost 20 individual distinctions. Between 2011 and 2012 he was considered the best box striker in the world.
