Radamel Falcao says he is focused on Atletico Madrid amid speculation linking him with Chelsea and Monaco.

The Colombia international is hoping to fire the Vicente Calderón outfit to Copa del Rey glory in Friday night’s final against Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old has been in prolific form for Diego Simeone’s side this season, netting an outstanding 28 goals in 33 La Liga appearances.

Falcao’s form has prompted talk of a switch to cash-rich Ligue 2 leaders Monaco, while Chelsea and Manchester United have both been linked with the former Porto man.

But the Atletico forward is ignoring the transfer speculation ahead of his side’s clash against Los Blancos.

“I don’t know anything, and the only thing that I have in my mind and keep concentration is on Atletico Madrid,” he said.

“I don’t know anything. I keep myself apart of what is being said. If it was for the press, I have already been transferred to all the teams in Europe, like Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

“I don’t find true any news that is being said about me.”

He added: “The only real thing is that I am under contract until 2016, all the rest is only speculation. I don’t know anything about Monaco. I have my mind focused where I am.”

Falcao has scored 69 goals in 85 appearances for Atletico after completing a €40m (£34m) move to the Spanish capital from Porto in 2011.
