With his move to Chelsea not yet working out for both parties (1 goal in 348 minutes in all competitions), Colombian standout Radamel Falcao could be a good fit for MLS, according to Argentine playmakers Federico Higuaín and Diego Valeri in comments made in a pre-MLS Cup conference call last week.
Both players are former teammates of Falcao, Higuaín at River Plate and Valeri at Porto, and have seen his abilities firsthand.
"I think it's a very personal decision, but obviously I'd love to see him here; if he wants to come, he would be welcome," Valeri said. "Having enjoyed a great relationship with him, I am convinced he would like to live in this country and have an experience in the MLS."
With 25 caps in 63 career appearances for Colombia, Falcao is a giant on the international scene, finishing third in CONMEBOL qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup with nine goals. But he missed the World Cup finals due to injury and was not called into the Colombian squad for November World Cup qualifiers due to his limited playing time with Chelsea.
