Red Devils ready to make Falcao’s loan move a permanent one.
Manchester United have already agreed personal terms with striker Radamel Falcao to join on a permanent deal, report the Mail, with the Colombian looking almost certain to become a United player on a permanent basis at the end of his season-long loan spell from AS Monaco.
United complete a loan move for Falcao on deadline day, paying the Ligue 1 side a £6m loan fee for the privilege, and have moved to put everything in place for a £43.5m permanent move despite the fact that it will not be completed until next summer.
The report suggests that United are keen to avoid any repeat of the debacle that followed the end of Carlos Tevez’s spell at Old Trafford, with the Argentinian moving to Manchester City when United were unable to agree terms with him over a permanent move to the club.
Despite having an agreement in place with Monaco for the permanent transfer, that was still predicated on United being able to secure personal terms with Falcao – something that now appears to have been done.
United fans will now be hoping that the former Atletico Madrid and FC Porto goal machine can find the form that he enjoyed before picking up a serious injury in the French Cup in January, with Falcao yet to find the back of the net under Louis van Gaal.
