Radamel Falcao has moved once again to quell rumours of an imminent move away from Atletico Madrid.

The Colombian forward has been in sensational form for his club, notching 28 goals in 33 La Liga games this season.

His scoring return has meant he has been linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderón to Manchester City and Chelsea – as well as newly-promoted French Ligue 1 club, Monaco.

But the former Porto star, 27, believes he will only move should his club hierarchy decide to sell.

“I haven’t thought about a move too much,” Falcao told Sky Sports News. “The reality is that I have three years left on my contract with Atletico.

“It’s true that last season during the summer there was a lot of speculation with clubs being named as a possible destination, but the truth is that I’ve not thought about it.

“Of course, it depends on what the financial needs of my club are and what sort of efforts Atletico make to keep me.

“I’ve been trying not to think too much about the rumours of clubs being linked with me.

“Instead, I’ve been focusing on my objectives as a player.”

Atletico Madrid have two remaining fixtures in their La Liga campaign against RCD Mallorca and Real Zaragoza.
