Javi Garcia is backing Manchester City's pursuit of Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao. Falcao is a target for City and Chelsea.

And ex-Real Madrid midfielder Javi Garcia told Sport360: "He's a great player and he can play in any league that he wants at the moment.

"Falcao has been fantastic. He is scoring a lot of goals in La Liga now and I already know him from Portugal where he did the same.

"I would rather play with him than against him. I faced him for Benfica against Porto when we were both playing in Portugal so I know what he can do. I'd be happy to have him in my team."
