Ronaldo or Falcao to replace Mario at Man City

Posted on February 04, 2013 by Admin

Sergio Aguero scored an absolutely sublime goal against Liverpool yesterday after pouncing on to a momentary hesitation by Pepe Reina, and Manchester City will need the Argentinean international to remain in top form for the rest of the season, along with his striker colleagues, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez. With the sale of Mario Balotelli to AC Milan, Mancini is one striker short and the draw against Liverpool left the champions nine points behind rivals Manchester United.

Another thing that should spur the three forwards on is the news that Mancini is ready to put the transfer fee for Mario into the signing of one of the best strikers in the world. Metro reports that City are targetting either Radamel Falcao or Cristiano Ronaldo, and are determined to have a proper go at the Champions league next season.

Athletico Madrid have managed to persuade Falcao to stay with them this season, but they have financial problems at the club and will find it nearly impossible to keep him this summer. The Colombian international is having another fantastic season in Spain, scoring at a rate of just over a goal a game.

Falcao’s goals and internal disputes have led to his club being ahead of last year’s champions Real Madrid. There is widespread belief in the Spanish press that both Jose Mourinho and Ronaldo could be leaving the club in the summer. Ronaldo has already declared that he is unhappy at Madrid, although his form does not show it. The Portuguese international already has 33 goals this season.

If he is for sale, there are not many clubs that could afford him, but City are certainly one, and he would certainly give us a huge boost in our attempts to win Europe’s top competition. For now, though, the strikers at City need to be on top form to claw back United’s lead and help us to retain the title.
