Real Madrid are making a shock move for Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao. Earlier this week, Real coach Jose Mourinho shutdown rumours of signing the Colombian, who is wanted by Chelsea.

But Cadena Cope says Real chief Jose Angel Sanchez made contact with Falcao's agent, Jorge Mendes, to test the ground.

The feedback Sanchez received was favourable - with Mourinho also aware of the approach.
