Man City scout Cancellieri a big fan of Atletico ace Falcao

Manchester City's chief scout Carlo Cancellieri has revealed that the club is certainly interested in Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian striker is world football's hottest property at present with a number of big clubs from around Europe interested in his services.

City is a known admirer of Falcao with Cancellieri going one step closer to confirm the English champions could pursue his services during the January transfer window.

When asked of City's interest in Fiorentina's Stevan Jovetic, Cancellieri preferred to speak of Falcao who he feels could make a huge difference at the Etihad Stadium.

"He is an interesting player, he has quality. But in attack City are already good, we're happy with Tevez, Aguero and Balotelli," he told of Jovetic.

"Moreover, I believe that our players are better than Jovetic. He is a very good player, but he is not one who could make a difference such as Falcao.

"I spoke about him in recent days with (Roberto) Mancini. If we were to take a player in January, we should take Falcao.

"He is an important player, the only one who could make us take the leap."
