Simeone admits Chelsea target Falcao to leave Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone concedes Radamel Falcao could leave this summer. Falcao is a top target for Chelsea.

"It is complicated, but it would be fabulous if he stayed," Simeone told Al Primer Toque.

"I am not his agent. I am not Falcao. Falcao has given me a lot and is a player with commitment, and I respect him a lot for that. The fans do not have to judge him after all he has given.

"[Fernando] Torres went and [Sergio] Aguero came, which was a risky bet. [Diego] Forlan went and Falcao came. If he does end up leaving, another competitive player will surely arrive."
