Monaco: Previously linked with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea, Colombia striker Radamel Falcao is confident that he hasn't made a mistake with his surprise move to promoted French club Monaco.
Despite expectations he would move to a major European club, Falcao joined Monaco from Atletico Madrid in an offseason deal worth an estimated 60 million euros ($78 million).
"I understand that this could have come as a surprise," the 27-year-old said when he was presented at a news conference on Tuesday. "It's a pity there's no European Cup, but that's how it is. But the aim is to win the title so that we can play in the Champions League next year.
