EPL: Man City join race to sign Falcao
Madrid, Oct 9: Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini flew to Spain to watch Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao and talented young forward Isco from Malaga.

Chelsea to spend £45m for Atletico Madrid star Falcao?

The £45 million-rated Colombian hitman scored his eighth goal of the season as Atletico won 2-1 against Malaga, maintaining a 100 per cent start to the season and are currently level in points with league leaders Barcelona with 19 points.

Chelsea are already planning to bid for Falcao, 26, while Manchester United and Juventus are also linked with the former Porto star.

Meanwhile, Liverpool target 20-year-old Isco has also attracted many Premier League clubs. The Reds along with Tottenham are planning a January swoop for the young Spaniard.

The cash-strapped Spanish club have revealed a £20 million buy-out clause for Isco while Atletico president remained patient about Falcao's sale.

But Falcao hinted at moving away from Vicente Calderon due to Spain's economic crisis and said: 'England? One day, I could go. I used to watch the Premier League on TV as a kid. Players like Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, Zola and Asprilla at Newcastle."

"I think I could adapt to England and score goals," he added.

However, Brendan Rodgers may be hoping to sign the young promising forward Isco on a cut-price deal but since cash-rich City have entered the race, Liverpool's plans may go for a toss as they seek to add more strikers after a poor start to their season in over 100 years.
