Real Madrid Fans Favour Falcao Over Suarez

Real Madrid fans hope to see the club spend the £42.4million raised from the sale of Mesut Ozil to Arsenal on AS Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, rather than Liverpool hitman Luis Suarez, reports the Daily Express.

According to a poll by Spanish newspaper Marca, supporters of the Primera Division giants would prefer to see Carlo Ancelotti swoop for the Colombian international, when the transfer window reopens in January.

73.2% of the 19,000 Madridistas who voted, chose Falcao for a move to the Santiago Bernabeu at the turn of the year, while the remaining 16.8% opted for signing Suarez.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will be boosted by the news, having also been heavily linked with a bid to bring the Uruguayan to the Emirates Stadium during the summer.

If Real Madrid decides to move for Falcao, then that will pave the way for Arsenal to renew interest in Suarez, leaving them unchallenged in their attempt to sign the Anfield star in 2014.

Brendan Rodgers will be determined to keep Liverpool's top goalscorer in 2012/13 on Merseyside, but has a ready-made replacement in the form of Daniel Sturridge to take on the mantle of chief goal-getter, should the South American leave the club in January.
