The new captain says van Gaal is the only one who knows how the Colombian will fit in.

The big news from transfer deadline day on Monday was Manchester United’s loan signing of Radamel Falcao from AS Monaco, with the option to buy the Colombia international permanently in 12 months time.
It now means that new manager Louis van Gaal has three strikers to call upon including Robin van Persie and newly appointed captain Wayne Rooney.
It would seem to be struggle to get all three into the starting XI and despite the departure of both Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck on Monday, it may be difficult to keep the trio happy.
Ahead of England’s international friendly with Norway on Wednesday, Rooney has also admitted he doesn’t know how van Gaal is going to fit everyone in.

It has been a poor start for the Red Devils under van Gaal in 2014/15, with defeats coming against Swansea City in the Premier League and MK Dons in the Capital One Cup, as well as league draws with both Sunderland and Burnley.
There is a two-week break now for internationals and it gives the Dutchman a chance to reflect on things and also how to integrate his £151.5m of new signings.
So far of the five new faces only Angel di Maria has featured for United, with Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw both injured, Marcos Rojo waiting on a work permit and Falcao having only just signed.
