The transfer merry-go-round is beginning to start spinning.
Atletico Madrid have announced that they are to sign Colombian striker Falcao for 40million euros (£34.7m) from Porto.
The highly-rated striker is regarded as one of Europe’s deadliest marksmen, with his strike ratio in Portugal close to a goal every game.
In total he netted 73 times in just 88 appearances for Porto.

Forlan told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I have received an offer from the Nerazzurri [Inter]. It would be like a dream come true to move to Milan and play for Inter.
Atletico Madrid have made something of a statement of intent as the fans at Vicente Calderon must have been worried that they were to lose their two main attacking threats with no replacements in sight. The capture of Radamel Falcao is something of a coup as a number of Europe’s elite has been chasing the Colombian hotshot and given that Gregorio Manzano’s side has not got Champions League football to offer this term.
Diego Forlan is hopeful of a move to Inter Milan as the San Siro side look to replace Samuel Eto’o who has left for Anzhi Makhachkala. The Uruguayan may be getting on a bit but his performance at the Copa America helped erase the memory of the striker’s poorest La Liga season to date.
