Man City make move to trump Chelsea for Falcao

Manchester City have moved ahead of Chelsea in the battle for Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.

The Sunday Mirror says City boss Roberto Mancini is a long-term admirer of the Atletico Madrid front-man and will not want a repeat of last summer when he missed out of a host of top targets.

Now his hopes of bringing £50million-rated Falcao to the Etihad have been boosted by reports in Spain claiming that the 27-year-old has told his club that he isn’t open to a move to Chelsea.

City view the European champions as their biggest threat in the battle to land Falcao.
