Falcao: "One day I would like to play in a different league"

Radamel Falcao has admitted he does not see himself finishing his career with Atlético Madrid and would like to play in another league one day.

However, the Colombia forward stressed that he still has a contract with 'Los Rojiblancos' and at the moment is only focused on keeping up his club's excellent start to the 2012/13 season.

He told 'Caracol Radio': "I dream about playing at the World Cup with Colombia and I want to keep winning with my club. I have clear objectives: to focus on the here and now. I can't think about the future, I just keep dreaming. One day the opportunity of playing in another league with another club will come. I would like to play for another team one day, but I have three years left on my contract and for now I am an Atlético Madrid player."

'El Tigre' also rejected the suggestion that he is planning a move to Chelsea in January, and for this reason has not played a single game for Atlético in the Europa League this season, despite finishing as the top scorer in the competition in 2011/12 and scoring two goals in the final.

"I don't think the fact I haven't played in the Europa League yet has anything to do with me leaving in January, I think it's a precautionary decision. No player ever likes to be left out but if I think about it sensibly, if I play fewer games I am in a better condition when I do play."

Playing for Colombia and the 2014 World Cup: "Sometimes the time difference can affect you, but I have no problem travelling to play for Colombia. I'm always motivated for those games. The thought of playing at the World Cup fills us with pride. I don't feel as if we have already qualified, but we have a good chance of making it and we can continue playing as well as we have so far."

His relationship with Messi and Cristiano: "I'm not friends with either of them. I have probably spoken to Cristiano more than Messi when we have come across each other on the pitch, because we have the same agent."

Life in the spotlight: "I have completed many dreams and still have a few more. Sometimes I still can't believe what has happened but I've stayed the same person I always was. But I can still go about my daily life without any restrictions, my life is the same as before."
