With all the top clubs in Europe keen to sign him he’ll have to decide does he stay in England or move abroad.
4. The Colombian Hitman – Radamel Falcao is reckoned by many experts to be the best striker in World football. Since joining Atletico Madrid from Porto two years ago he has been sensational, last week helping Atletico beat bitter rivals Real Madrid to win the Copa Del Rey. All the top clubs would want him to play for them, he just has to decide where he’d like to go next.
