Bogota, April 21 (IANS) Colombian striker Radamel Falcao has said that he would not be able to turn down a move to Major League Soccer (MLS) though he insisted that he is still focussed on plying his trade in Europe.
The 30-year-old who is still under contract with French Ligue 1 side Monaco has had two very dismal seasons with Manchester United and Chelsea in the English Premier League.
“I never say no (to MLS) but in this moment I am thinking about Europe and my performances here. I think I have more years to fight in these leagues,” Falcao was quoted as saying by goal.com on Thursday.
Falcao said he has been keenly following the MLS, a league which now have talents such as Federico Higuain and Diego Valeri who were Falcao’s ex-teammates.
“I follow the league. In England, they are showing the games and I have some friends who play in there who I played with in River Plate or Porto like Higuain or Valeri,” Falcao said.
“Some other Colombian players are playing in Major League Soccer and obviously the big stars like Andrea Pirlo, Kaka or Giovani dos Santos. I think MLS could be bigger than now because they have everything they need to become an even stronger league and become even more competitive.”
