Among the international previews and overviews in the Press today there are some interesting quotes from City Spanish midfielder Javi Garcia.
The Blues' new hoetlding midfielder believes Atletico Madrid striker Falcao wortuld be the perfect addition to the City squad next January in a piece on the website Sport360.
They report: "As Europe’s top clubs get set for a battle to land Radamel Falcao, Javi Garcia says he would love to see him at Manchester City.
"The English Premier League champions are just one of the sides who have been linked with the £46-million-rated Colombian striker.
"Boss Roberto Mancini watched Falcao in Atletico Madrid’s last La Liga game, a 2-1 win over Malaga where he scored one and played a part in an own-goal winner.
"And, having witnessed his ability at close quarters when Falcao played for Porto and Garcia was at Portuguese rivals Benfica, the City midfielder has no doubt the frontman would flourish in England.
“'He’s a great player and he can play in any league that he wants at the moment,'” said Garcia, who was in Abu Dhabi yesterday at the Manchester City School of Football at Zayed Sports City, and a special signing for hundreds of fans at the CityStore at Marina Mall.
“'Falcao has been fantastic. He is scoring a lot of goals in La Liga now and I already know him from Portugal where he did the same.
“I would rather play with him than against him. I faced him for Benfica against Porto when we were both playing in Portugal so I know what he can do. I’d be happy to have him in my team.'”
