AS Monaco star Radamel Falcao has dropped a hint over his future as his professional football career nears its end
The 33-year-old well past his prime but still has a lot to offer to the struggling French outfit in their Ligue 1 relegation battle.
The Colombia international has been linked with a potential move to AC Milan before the Rossoneri snapped up Gonzalo Higuain’s services.
The talks of Falcao’s transfer to the Stadio San Siro have continued during the January transfer session, but he seems destined to retire at Monaco.
Rapidly approaching the pension, the former Atletico Madrid striker has admitted he would like to try his luck in baseball once he hangs up his boots.
“I love baseball. When I was young, in Venezuela where I grew up, it was the sport I practiced and even at a good level.
Dans une interview à France Football, Radamel Falcao confie envisager une reconversion dans le baseball : "comme (Michael) Jordan, même si lui était basketteur et n'était pas arrivé à jouer dans les ligues majeures au plus haut niveau. Moi, je veux être le premier à réussir ça !" pic.twitter.com/xXZHuu9Ftg— MadeInFOOT (@madeinfoot) March 11, 2019
“Often with my wife, I think when I finish my football career, I will start one as a professional baseball player.
“Just like Michael Jordan, even if he started from basketball and could not play at the highest levels.”
Once considered the most lethal No.9 on the planet, ‘El Tigre’ has bagged over 260 goals in his professional football career, defending the colors of River Plate, Porto, Atletico Madrid, AS Monaco, Chelsea, and Manchester United.
