If the latest reports are to be believed, we could very well see a repeat of the ‘Galacticos’ era at the Santiago Bernabeu… According to the Daily Mail, Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly considering signing Colombian striker Radamel Falcao from AS Monaco.

Former Real Madrid defender Ricardo Carvalho was quoted telling Spanish newspaper AS that if a transfer does happen, ‘Real Madrid would boast the most-feared attack in football’s history’. Portuguese sensation Cristiano Ronaldo, Welsh prodigy Gareth Bale and Colombian juggernaut Falcao are among the best players in the world, and having them all on the same team making-up your attacking line would surely send shivers down the back of any opposition.

Over a decade ago, Real Madrid literally had the ‘whose who’ of football talent in their squad. If one could assemble the World’s best XI at the time to create the ‘Avengers’ of football, then it was Real Madrid. This era saw the likes of Luis Figo, Raul, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo Fenomino, Roberto Carlos and David Beckham come together to make-up the ‘dream team’.

The same could be said of them today, as the ten-time Champions League winners have splashed the cash on incredible talent. Two-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo came from Manchester United at a then-record price of £80 million. Joined shortly after by the young Gareth Bale who cost the club a staggering £100 million from Tottenham Hotspur. That’s close to £200 million spent on two very versatile forwards.

One cannot imagine the price tag attached to the former Atletico Madrid striker, who joined the French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco for close to £50 million. Falcao had played the role of a ‘playmaker’ in Atletico Madrid’s victory against Real Madrid in the Copa Del Rey final.

The Colombian hitman is currently watching from the sides with an injury, as his home team progresses to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup.

Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is reportedly a huge fan of 28-year-old ‘El Tigre’ who is currently teammates with Carvalho. After losing Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli, Real only have French forward Karim Benzema alongside some younger players like Alvaro Morata and Jese Rodriguez.

Carvalho already hails his former teammate Ronaldo as ‘the best player in the world’ and a consummate professional. Bale, according to him, is also “really good”. Falcao would have great chemistry with Ronaldo but he would be too valuable for Monaco to lose… But Real boss Carlo Ancelotti would certainly love to have the impressive striker leading the attack this coming season, as the boys in white look to reclaim the lost La Liga title.
