Chelsea, Man Utd target Falcao admits Premier League ambition

AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao admits playing in the Premier League is on the agenda. Falcao shunned the Premier League for a lucrative contract at Monaco last summer, but the 28-year-old, a target for Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, says he will end up in England one day.

"I hope to be playing for many more years in Europe and I want to play in the English league at some time," he told the Daily Mail. "I watch the Premier League and I see how competitive it is and how teams are very direct in terms of looking for the opposition's goal. The football is very physical; it's a very interesting league."

Time will tell if it is attractive enough to tempt Falcao; next season he will be playing for Monaco in the Champions League.

"It is very important to be playing in this competition. I know that people want to see me competing in the Champions League," he said.
