Manchester United in hotly-contested battle for Columbian striker: Could ‘the Tiger’ be an option?

Posted by

A year after Manchester United fell in love with Argentine striker Carlos Tevez, the club looks to be headed back to Tevez’s home country for another Apertura League product who plays for 2007 league champions, River Plate.

DiarioSport is reporting that Manchester United are interested in bringing Colombian striker Radamel “The Tiger” Falcao to the club next season, in an attempt to add some more South American flair to their strikeforce.

Falcao has scored 38 goals in 58 appearances for the Argentine club, and would make an interesting pairing up front with Tevez and/or Rooney. After watching how easily Tevez was able to adjust to the English game during his time at West Ham, Sir Alex probably thinks Falcao could have the same success in a short period of time.

Would Manchester United supporters welcome a move for Falcao? Or would you rather the club concentrate their time on more proven option?
