Falcao is letting his agent do all the worrying, talking, wheeling and dealing

When you employ one of the best in the business, I suppose it's only smart to stay out of the way and let him do what he's best at.  Otherwise, it would be quite silly to waste money employing one of the best.  And make no mistake, Jorge Mendes is one of the best at this whole agenting business.

So, while Mendes is out there on the campaign trail, hoping to engineer a deal for his embattled client, Falcao is off with the rest of his Colombian national team chums (including soon-to-be fully fit, hopefully, Juan Cuadrado) to prepare for Copa America 2015 in Chile coming up later this month.

"Today I'm thinking [about] just the Copa, I know of many things that have been talked about, but I'm very calm, my agent is taking care of [my future]."

[...]

"I have not let [the difficult year] affect me much because one of the main goals for this year was the Copa and wanted to take advantage of every minute, every second to be good for the team."

Wait, that was Falcao "taking advantage" of his opportunities at Manchester United last season?  Oh boy.  At least he's not (yet) short on confidence (or confident words).

Meanwhile, as more and more outlets pick up on the story of "talks" having started between the two interested parties, here comes the Mirror to claim there's new competition for the striker's signature from AC Milan and Sevilla.  Sure there is, Mr. Mendes, sure there is.
