Old Trafford side told to fork out big sum to land AS Monaco forward on a permanent basis.
Having paid £6m to sign AS Monaco forward Radamel Falcao on a season long loan deal Man United have been informed that a move to bring in the Colombian on a permanent basis would cost a whopping £74m according to the Daily Express.

The 28 year old is being paid an astonishing £350k a week, which works out at £18m a year, which the Ligue 1 side will demand £50m as a transfer fee for Falcao should Louis van Gaal be sufficiently impressed by his displays in 2014/15.
Should Man United mount a genuine Premier League title challenge, or at the very least secure a top four finish, then the resultant Champions League qualification will deem the temporary move a success.
Falcao has scored goals freely across Europe, netting regularly in Portugal, Spain and France and the powerful marksman is a predatory finisher who’s physical presence should lend itself well to life in the English top tier.
One would have to wonder though just how van Gaal will be able to use Falcao, Wayne Rooney AND Robin Van Persie in the same starting eleven.
