On 18 August 2011, Atletico announced they had signed Falcao from Porto on a €40 million transfer fee, the fee could potential rise to €50 million based on performance based clauses, making him the most expensive player in the club’s history. Atletico and the Colombian forward also agreed on a four-year-contract.

Falcao participated with the Colombia National under-17 team at the 2001 South American U17 Championship, where he played four matches and scored one goal against Bolivia. He was also called up to the U-17 team for the 2003 FIFA U17 World Championship, but sustained an injury before the tournament and had to drop out.

Falcao has been described as a “natural goal scorer” and a striker with the “ability to bag a goal from nothing”. He can hold up the ball well due to his high strength and is able to play off the shoulder of the last defender.
