Atletico Madrid chief reveals Chelsea, Man City offers for Falcao

Atletico Madrid chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin has revealed both Chelsea and Manchester City failed with offers for Radamel Falcao. Gil Marin says Atletico are proud to count on Falcao this season.

"You only have to look at what happened this summer," he said. "Apart from Athletic and ourselves, everyone has had to sell big names because they needed to survive in the current environment of bankruptcy. A French club [PSG], a Russian [Anzhi] and two English [Chelsea and Man City] came for Falcao and he stayed because we took a risk we would be able to make our payments."
