Falcao leaves Atletico Madrid after two successful seasons. He scored 52 goals in La Liga play over that span, ranking him behind only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. His previous stops included Porto and River Plate.
The 27-year-old Colombian international has skyrocketed to fame in recent years. He’s even reached a point where being mentioned in the same sentence as Messi and Ronaldo is common, and clubs around Europe took notice.
What Falcao brings to his new club is quite simple: elite finishing ability. Few strikers in the world have shown the same natural instincts in the final third. When given touches in dangerous areas, he usually finds a way to convert. via | Bleacher Report.
