    Adrian Castellano and Marcelo Simonian who're Hugo Rodalega and Falcaos respective agents met at a AGM last night, they both believe their players should be on the move. I've been told this by someone who was at an AGM who's friends with Sky Andrew, who is JD's agent?

    Beja Group, Sky Andrew, etc were all there. Basically was a yearly meeting with all football agency groups who all meet to talk about the transfer market etc, prior to the summer window opening.

    Adrian Castellano and Marcelo Simonian believe that Spurs have a bigger chance of landing Falcao because all of the other teams you'd expect him to go to, Barca, Real Madrid, Inter and Man City were the four interested parties all have their targets already and he doesn't feature in them.

    We've registered intrest and enquired with Porto, Marcelo backed this up. Said that our bid largely features on add ons due to Daniel Levys reluctancy to buy players from that team and league due to Helder Postiga flopping after having the same build up that Falcao appears to.

    So it appears we're interested in him, and at the moment according to his agent, lead the race. Just passing this on, if anyone wants to know who the guy I know is who's mates with Sky then just PM me and I'll clarify it.

    rejects new contract..... How many times have we heard this now ^^

    FROM EVERY PLAYER ALMOST. Rooney was raging to go to man city just to get a better contract at man united money grabbing conts.

    I think almost every player rejects his contract offer just to get a much better one but the club will fear to let him go on a cheap when his contract runs out........ so they give him a better offer.

    Expect him to sign a new contract which will give him even more money and will go till 2016 like with hulk.

    and then see him go after they played in the CL this year for 30-40 € million to someone who pays him big wages.

    Understand where you're coming from mate but if we've registered interest, at least we're in the chase. Whether he does a rooney or not is a different matter. Being interested is showing signs of ambition this club has alone.

    alright get your point mate.

    would be good if we could sign him.

    I cannot believe that people compare him with postiga lol. I would more compare him with ronaldo when he was at sporting!

    It all depents on your manager when you move into a new league.

    If ronaldo didnt have SAF as manager who knows maybe he would end up like postiga......

    Hes a goal scoring machine and scored the record in the europa league. no matter where this guy plays he cannot flop.
    And if he flops its all down to us not providing him chances or the manager not putting enough faith in him.

    And If we sign him I expect harry redknapp to make him a even better player.
    I mean lets be real a player who scores 17 goals in 14 games in the europa league and someone who makes guiseppe rossi who we bid 35 million € in january for look like someone who touched the ball the first time CANNOT BE A FLOP.

    Someone who is able to score 5 goals against villareal in 2 games... Cannot be a flop !

    He is the fooking real deal get your check book out levy if there is any chance of signing him and fook the add ons this guy is not postiga its the messi of the europa league ffs

    Why can't Falcao share the same love for Spurs as I do? I wish he would just come out and say "Harry! Give me a contract my man!"

    salas was a beast of a striker.

    I remember zamorano getting annoyed at inter because ronaldo took his number 9 shirt (fair enough though, ronaldo was the best striker in the world at the time) so he took the 18 shirt and put a + sign in between the numbers lol

    Every time I've watched him in Europa this year he has utterly and completely smashed it. I've said it in other places and may as well say it again here I think we should hunting down the sides of the sofa for every last penny for this dude.

    He is better than Hulk IMO. Great header, scores more goals, he's got the talent to be at the right place at the right time.

    I wouldn't say he's better than Hulk, as they play in differen positions that can accommodate different formations. However, I do believe he is what we need more than Hulk.

    Agreed. I'd love to have Hulk at Spurs, but we need someone like Falcao MUCH more.

    i think if you look at overall contribution to the team i think falcao is a much better player than hulk. Also falcao has been fairly consistent whereas hulk has only really had one standout season.

    Falcao can easily handle the physicality of the EPL. G. Rossi can't.

    I don't think he should have too much trouble adjusting to the prem. Atleast, I think he'll score sooner than Torres did, after Torres spent years in the Premier League.
