Atletico Madrid say they are willing to let Radamel Falcao leave the club this summer and will allow him to choose his next club.
The Colombian hitman has been a huge success in his two years at the Vincente Calderon since his €40million move from Porto, scoring 70 goals for Los Rojiblancos.
Falcao's incredible goalscoring form has seen him linked with moves to the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea and Monaco this summer, but Atletico initially appeared determined to keep their top scorer.
However, the club have now conceded they will be allowing the 27-year-old to leave, claiming they are confident of replacing Falcao having coped with the losses of Sergio Aguero and Diego Forlan in the past.
"Atletico knows how to change good strikers," chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin told Sky Sports. "Fernando Torres, Forlan, Aguero and now Falcao.
"We don't know who exactly will be the next one but we know Atletico will have a strong team next season.
"Before the start of the season we talked with the player and we promised him that if he kept the same performance and helped us to the UEFA Champions League, Atletico would help him.
"Every decision that he takes, Atletico will be with him."
