Marca claimed that Manchester United had made an advanced payment to secure his signature, a claim backed up by Spaniash journalist Guillem Balague but Sir Alex was quick to deny this over the weekend. And now the 27 year old hitman has also moved to play down the rumour.
Speaking to Columbian radio station RCN, Falcao said:
“In recent weeks I have tried to isolate myself and not think about the rumours about my future.
“I do not really know where that information has come from [joining Manchester United], that is part of the press. I’m only focused on Atletico Madrid. I do not let the market rumours affect my performance.”
