The second season in the camp of Atlético turned out to be no less successful for Falcao. He scored 34 goals in all the tournaments. Indeed, Messi and Ronaldo were still far away, but the Colombian significantly stood out against the other forwards.

Unfortunately, Radamel’s stay in the Spanish capital didn’t last long. In summer 2013, Monaco bought out his contract, although everyone expected that the striker would move to a more stellar club. However, it was the Monegasques who found the funds necessary to buy out the striker’s contract. After that, his career gradually went down.

What happened to Falcao next?

Later, the forward was injured often. He got injuries quite often, so, he couldn’t fully realize his potential. After the cruciate ligaments rupture, the striker spent long time recovering and never regained his former scoring skills. Unlike the spanish La Liga table, where Atlético finished in the top three all the tie with him, in other championships there were certain problems. Further events in the Colombian’s career:

  1. Manchester United. The lease to the Red Devils turned out to be a real failure. The forward scored only 4 goals in 29 games. Naturally, his contract wasn’t bought out.
  2. Chelsea. José Mourinho decided to give the striker another chance in the Premier League. However, Radamel failed. He had only 1 goal scored over the whole season.
  3. Galatasaray. In Turkey, the striker scored a lot, but was no longer among the leading strikers of the planet.
  4. Rayo Vallecano. The team, which was traditionally at the bottom of the table Spanish La Liga, decided to invite Falcao when he was already 35, and didn’t lose. The forward at once began to strike the opponents’ goal regularly.

That’s how the career of one of the key forwards of the generation developed.
