Recent reports have linked the high-glying Atleto Madrid striker to a move to Chelsea and PSG after a fine start to the seaosn with 10 goals in La Liga so far. The player himself has admitted that he is intrigued by the prospect of playing in another country.

Falcao told Radio Caracol: "The chance of playing in another league and for another club will come. I keep dreaming.

"I know that in time I would like to go to a different team. But I have three more years left on my contract with Atletico.

"The dream is always there. The Premier League is an interesting league but I have a few years left on my contract with Atletico and I'm just focusing on Atletico."

"There are dreams that I have met and others that I am achieving now. I dream of reaching the World Cup with Colombia, and also to keep winning with my club," he added.

"In my head I have these objectives, they are very clear. I can't think after these objectives."

In the interview, Falcao also clarified the reason for him not appearing in his side's Europa League fixtures, playing down the fact that the club may be keeping him from being cup-tied to eke out more value.

"The reason I don't play in the Europa League is because of a technical decision by [Atletico boss Diego] Simeone, not because I'm leaving in January. It's just a precaution," Falcao said.

His phenomenal strike rate has seen him mentioned along with Lionel Messi and Crisiiano Ronaldo, both of whom he revealed he is not especially close to but friendly enough with on the pitch.

"I am not friends with Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi. But when I see them on the field, I exchange words with the two."
