Old Trafford side may not be willing to take risk on signing AS Monaco forward on a permanent basis.
Man United are reportedly unsure about signing loaned in Colombian Radamel Falcao on a permanent deal according to the Daily Mail.
The 28 year old is currently out with a thigh injury suffered in a training session ahead of Man United’s clash with Chelsea and there is a concern that the physicality of the Premier League may be too much for the AS Monaco man to cope with.
The south American missed a chunk of last term with a knee injury and knowing that a permanent move for Falcao would cost the club around £1m a month in wages alone the Old Trafford side may opt to look elsewhere for a new striker next summer.
There are also doubts over Falcao’s ability to find the back of the net in the English top tier, this despite the fact that the marksman had no such issues in France, Portugal and Spain, having scored just once in five appearances thus far.
Falcao has between now and the end of the season to prove himself at Man United and arguably the AS Monaco man may himself be against a permanent move if Louis van Gaal’s side have not secured a top four finish.
