LISBON, Porto (AP) – FC Porto says it has received a bid from Atletico Madrid for Colombia striker Radamel Falcao.
The Portuguese club said in a statement to the Lisbon stock exchange Thursday that Atletico also wants to buy Portugal midfielder Ruben Micael.
Porto did not say how much the Spanish club is offering, but said it is studying the proposal.
Falcao - nicknamed ''El Tigre'' (The Tiger) - was a key player for Porto last season, scoring 34 goals to help it win four trophies, including the Portuguese title in a 30-game unbeaten league run.
The 25-year-old Falcao scored the only goal in the Europa League final in Dublin.
