The Colombian hit-man moved to the Theatre of Dreams on transfer deadline day after becoming fed up with life at French club AS Monaco.
The 28-year-old is still getting back to full fitness after suffering a knee injury in early 2014 that kept him out of the World Cup and it is for this reason that Ferguson thinks it was a good idea to get Falcao on loan.
“The big one is Falcao who we’re all waiting to see. Obviously, he has fantastic goalscoring ability,” he told MUTV.
“He had his injury so getting him on loan is the right thing to do.”
Falcao scored his first goal for the Red Devils in their 2-1 victory over Everton before the international break and he has started United’s last three games.
If the 20 time league champions want to make the forwards loan move permanent, they will have to pay a whopping £43 million to make it happen.
