Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone refuses to discuss Radamel Falcao's future beyond the end of this season.

Manchester United have reportedly made a downpayment on a fee for the Chelsea target.

Simeone took the speculation in his stride though, telling reporters this afternoon: "The same thing happened at the same stage of the season last year. It's not news.

"Falcao is a great player and it's logical that the best teams in the world are interested in him. It doesn't surprise me."
