Falcao’s permanent move to Old Trafford now in doubt.
Juventus have their eyes on a move for Colombian striker Radamel Falcao from French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco at the end of the Premier League season, report the Mirror, with the Serie A champions believing that the former FC Porto and Atletico Madrid goal machine will not see his season long loan move with Manchester United made into a permanent one.
Falcao joined United on a season long loan deal from Monaco in the summer when the Red Devils decided that they were willing to meet the Colombian’s exorbitant wages, but his move to Old Trafford has not proven to be an unquestionable success so far and United are keeping their options open as to whether they intend to make the move a permanent one.
The Red Devils are likely to wait until the end of the season before making their decision on Falcao – but it appears that Juventus have attempted to second guess their Premier League foes, deciding that United are unliekly to conclude a deal for Falcao and are making preparations to swoop themselves.
The Bianconeri were one of a number of teams contacted about Falcao’s availability in the summer when he was touted around major European clubs towards the end of the transfer window, but Juventus’ ability to meet his wages could prove to be something of an issue.
