Strike pair not on club’s radar.
Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano has denied that the club are in the market for either Radamel Falcao and Neymar, Sky Sports reports.
Speculation has been heavy linking the pair with moves to clubs all over Europe and City have been mentioned several times alongside the likes of Monaco, Barcelona and Chelsea, amongst others.
However, Soriano has admitted that the club’s transfer plans lie elsewhere and they will not be joining the race for the powerful Colombian or the skilful Brazilian.
“Neymar and Falcao? [These reports are] false, they have never been on our agenda,” Soriano is quoted as telling Tuttomercatoweb.com.
Falcao has seen himself become one of the most sought after strikers in the world this summer and has largely been tipped to move on with Atletico Madrid already lining up a number of replacements in anticipation of his exit, whilst Neymar finally prepares to move to Europe to cement his status as one of footballs most exciting talents.
There are only a handful of clubs who could afford the pair, but it now appears that City isn’t one of them, especially after Soriano confirmed that Sergio Aguero would be staying put after he was linked with a move to Real Madrid.
“The first thing I want to emphasise is that we have never thought of selling Aguero. El Kun will be happy to stay with us this year,” Soriano added.
