Radamel Falcao to Real Madrid is a Recipe for Disaster

With a few moments left before the transfer window closes, players are making moves all over Europe. One of the most talked about speculation at this time is that of Radamel Falcao moving on from his current team of AS Monaco. Many predicted that the prolific Colombian striker would soon want to move on to higher levels after moving to the team in 2013. Falcao was always the main man and was clinical with his striking during his time at Porto FC and Atletico Madrid, but it seems that something is not working in his favor at Monaco.

Real Madrid have now come into the picture having realized this and are trying to engineer a move for the striker. This is definitely not a good idea. Madrid has a team which is already filled with superstars on the field and on the bench. If Falcao was to eventually make a move to Madrid it would do either of two things: hurt his career by not getting enough playing time or hurt the career of someone Madrid probably spent a lot of time and money investing in. A move to the Premier League might actually be a very good idea.

It is understandable that players want to play at the highest level possible but Madrid is definitely not the choice Falcao should go with. There are many other teams in which he can play and prove himself. Someone like Falcao at the peak of his career needs to be playing week in and week out or his talent will deteriorate very quickly.

Many people might argue that this would make Madrid the formidable team that they need to be to claim the La Liga title, but it can also hurt their team chemistry and morale with so many stars and egos to deal with. I think it is best that Falcao move to a team where he can be given a fair chance at proving himself as one of the best strikers in the world. I’m not saying that this can’t be done at Madrid but the chances are slim.
