Diego Simeone with Radamel Falcao © Action Images

Simeone 'unsure' of Falcao's future



Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone conceded on Wednesday that he "didn't know" if the La Liga high-flyers would be able to retain the services of star striker Radamel Falcao for next season.

"We have to be realists, I don't like to lie to people. We don't know what can happen with Falcao, we have to make the most of him while we have him," Simeone told Radio Marca.

"Falcao is here, now, and he helps us to win. We hope that he can stay. If that's not the case, I wish him good luck," added the former Argentina international.

The 26-year-old Colombian is the second-leading scorer in Spain's top flight this season with 18 goals, trailing only Lionel Messi's staggering tally of 28, and his irresistible form following his arrival from Porto in August 2011 has caught the eye of Atletico's city rivals Real as well as several English clubs.

Falcao is under contract with Los Rojiblancos until 2016, a deal which notably includes a €60-million release clause.
