Done Deal: Manchester United Complete Mega Transfer

If reports from English Media Outlet METRO is to be believed, then manchester United have agreed to sign Radamel Falcao on a permanent deal. The price has been mentioned at £43m as the Colombian is set to earn a massive £250,000-a-week plus extensive bonuses at Old Trafford.


Falcao has shows signs of dazzling brilliance but is yet to score for the Red Devils. The recent developments clearly show how desperate United are to eke out a permanent move, hoping to avoid yet another Carlos Tevez-esque situation. Falcao will turn 29 next February but United are believed to have faith in him. With Robin Van Persie clearly lacking his sharpness and having his best years behind him, the Red Devils now possibly want to hand Rooney and Falcao the attacking mantle for at least the coming couple of seasons.

It means that Louis Van Gaal clearly sees the 28-year-old as a huge part of his future plans and wants to complete the signing on a permanent deal before other clubs go all out next summer. Falcao though hasn’t been at his best for Nouveau Riche French side Monaco but the Red Devils would be hoping he can replicate the form he showed at Porto at Atletico Madrid, which has made him such a dangerous striker.

Monaco defender Ricardo Carvalho however believes that United will soon relaize Falcao’s goal scoring potential. Carvalho claims, “He doesn’t need too much time. He’s a striker that smells the goal and is dangerous in the box. Always when he gets the opportunity to score, he will score. The Premier League is a tough league to play in, but I think he’ll do well and score there. He has that thing with him when he gets a half chance he will score. He’s a great striker and a great professional.”

The former Chelsea man also said that Falcao was intent on leaving Monaco ever since he started to hear of interest from Real Madrid and Manchester United in the summer.
