Falcao has looked a shadow of the player many regarded as the best striker in the world..
Former Man United player Paul McGrath has said that it is quite evident to see that Radamel Falcao isn’t happy at the club following his reaction to being taken off against Preston North End.
With the game going away from Man United as they conceded a goal early in the second half, Louis van Gaal decided to act immediately and take off the ineffective Falcao for Ashley Young, putting Maroune Fellaini up front.
Falcao was visibly baffled (video below) by the decision and even squinted when looking at the board in disbelief that his number was up when his team essentially needed goals, McGrath feels that was telling.

“Radamel Falcao is not getting the sort of service he would at other clubs he’s played for,” McGrath told talkSPORT.
“He goes on runs and the ball just doesn’t come to him or it comes to him too quickly and it runs through to the goalkeeper. He thrives on little things on the box and even those things aren’t coming off for him at the moment.
“It’s certainly not working out for him. You can see his reaction when he got bought off last night, he’s not happy at the club.”
On current form, it is hard to see how Man United will activate the buy-option inserted in Falcao’s loan with the forward available for a permanent transfer for around £45m.
