Players have no choice over which clubs they are sold to claims Man United’s Radamel Falcao…
Colombian striker Radamel Falcao claims he was forced out of Atletico Madrid and never wanted his big money move to Ligue 1 side Monaco, according to Caught Offside.

Currently on loan at Manchester United, Falcao has failed to replicate the form he showed at Atletico Madrid and Porto since moving to Old Trafford.
Injuries and a lack of fitness have seen him struggle, but Louis van Gaal has kept faith in the striker and he appears to be playing his way into form.
Falcao was criticised for making a suspected money motivated move to Monaco, but now claims that players have very little choice over which clubs they end up at.
“I knew it was very difficult to stay [at Atletico] because of the [bad] economic times they faced.,” he said.
“No footballer is a master of his fate. Sometimes I laugh when people ask me why I didn’t go ‘here’ or ‘there’, as if a player decides where to work.
“Very rarely do you have the choice of going to one team or another.
“I’ve been in many situations where I couldn’t get what I wanted. I’d want to go somewhere and eventually be forced to join someone else.”
He seems keen to stay at Old Trafford, but with Louis van Gaal having to fork out £46.5m to make the loan permanent he will have to do a lot to prove himself this season.
