Colombian ace Falcao is again the subject of speculation after Spanish daily Marca reported that negotiations with United were at an advanced stage but Atletico boss Simeone has played down the rumours.
"The same thing happened at the same stage of the season last year. It's not news,” he said.
"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."
