Real Madrid’s head coach stated that the Spanish soccer club is not looking to sign any more players, including rumors of a transfer for Colombia’s star striker, Radamel Falcao.
Radamel Falcao was said to have been favored by Real Madrid less than two weeks ago, but now head coach Carlo Ancelotti has shut down those rumors, stating that the club will not be adding more players to the roster during the transfer window, according to the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper.

“We’re not looking to make any more signings,” said Ancelotti.
Although the Colombian striker might have lost the opportunity to play for last year’s Champions League winners and the chance to play alongside his national teammate, James Rodriguez, Falcao is still in high demand.
British side Liverpool and Italian club Juventus are both said to be the top teams battling over the rights to “El Tigre,” according to online sports site, Give Me Sport.
According to the Daily Mail, Juventus has made inquiries with French club AS Monaco for the possibility to loan Falcao for a season, and the Italian club is apparently in the lead to acquire the Colombian star.
Falcao has only been with Monaco for a year, and he missed out on the 2014 World Cup because of a knee injury that kept him off the field for more than seven months.
Cuadrado to Manchester United?
Recent speculation regarding fellow Colombian, Juan Cuadrado, indicates he could be wearing the Manchester United jersey as soon as this coming Sunday, according to Give Me Sport.
Manchester head coach Louis van Gaal has been reported to be keen on the Cuadrado addition, whom van Gaal regards as an ideal winger for the British club’s 3-5-2-system, Give Me Sport reported.
Manchester United has yet to make any significant signings during this transfer window; however, the team’s fans are getting anxious with only twelve days left in the window, and the need for new talent after last season’s disappointing seventh place.
The Colombian winger impressed soccer enthusiasts during the World Cup, where Colombia’s successful rise to sudden fame surprised the world.
