Perhaps it is because they will get at least £50 million for him, but Atletico Madrid are relaxed about losing Radamel Falcao.
The Colombian striker’s next port of call remains a mystery, but the Copa del Rey champions are resigned to losing him.
However, after scoring 70 goals in two seasons at the Calderon, and spearheading Atleti’s blossoming into perennial silverware contenders, Falcao will be leaving with goodwill.
Atletico chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Martin says that Falcao is free to choose where his future lies, and that the club will support him in his decision.
While they know they stand to lose arguably the best striker on the planet, Madrid believe that Falcao has earned the right to determine his destiny, and that history suggests they are well-placed to replace him.
"Atletico knows how to change good strikers," Martin 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."
Falcao has been linked to English Premier League champions Manchester United in the past few months, as well as Europa League winners Chelsea.
Manchester City are also now being touted as serious contenders to sign the prolific hit-man, after Juventus confirmed they are interested in signing Carlos Tevez from the Etihad outfit.
