“If A Player Cost £95m or £5,000 It’s Not Any Different For Me.” Manchester United Manager Warns Striker

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has stated that there shall be no transfers in the current January transfer window. The Red Devils who have been linked with a long list of big names this season will not be making any further additions, according to the what the Dutch manager has said recently. Despite that, the United manager has also urged Colombian striker Radamel Falcao to step up and prove himself, not just to his fans, but to his critics as well.

Van Gaal expressed a definite desire to play in the Champions League next season, but dismissed any more purchases with regards to those ambitions. The 28 year old, Falcao has struggled for fitness and form since move to Old Trafford on deadline-day switch from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, scoring a tally of just three goals in his 13 appearances. Van Gaal who had dropped the superstar striker ahead of their home defeat to Southampton had prompted his agent Jorge Mendes to claim that the Colombian sensation could be part of any big club in the world and that a lot of big European giants were still keen on his signature. The Dutchman responded with a simple comment and said,

“He has to prove himself. We have made a deal and everything is clear. It’s not the end of the year so he has a chance.”

“If a player cost £95m or £5,000 it’s not any different for me. You have to prove yourself.”

United do have the option of signing Falcao, on a permanent basis, if they wish to, for a reported £43m. Again Van Gaal lashed out at those comments by adding that the player’s value counted for nothing, if he could not perform, as in Falcao’s case.
