Chelsea transfers: Ricardo Carvalho tips Radamel Falcao to join Madrid
Chelsea transfers: Ricardo Carvalho believes Real Madrid would have world's best attack if Radamel Falcao joins
Ricardo Carvalho is expecting Radamel Falcao to move to Real Madrid this summer to complete the most dangerous attack in “football history”.
The Colombia international, who is having to sit out the World Cup after suffering knee ligament damage, has been linked with los Blancos since last summer despite swapping Atletico Madrid for Monaco.
I think Falcao is the missing piece to make the Madrid attack perfect
The 28-year-old Arsenal and Chelsea target continued his prolific form in France as the former Porto man scored nine goals in 16 Ligue 1 appearances for his new club.
However, former Blues defender Carvalho is hoping to see Falcao link up with Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo to provide los Blancos with one of the most-feared attacks in world football.
“Everyone knows Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world and also the best professional,” Carvalho told AS.
“In terms of professionalism, Falcao is the player who is closest. He will have a very long career because he takes so much care.
“Cristiano, Gareth Bale and Falcao would be the most feared three-man attack in football history. But it’s better [for Monaco] that Falcao stays.
“I think Falcao is the missing piece to make the Madrid attack perfect. Cristiano is the best player in the world, Bale is very good and Falcao is the best striker there is. I’m a defender and I wouldn’t want to face them!”
