Manchester United could sign flop striker Radamel Falcao for a cut price fee from AS Monaco after the Ligue 1 side were hit with Financial Fair Play sanctions, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The French side have been fined £9.5 million and restricted to a 22 man squad after breaking the debt related rules, and this could mean that they will be willing to drop their £43.2 million asking price for the Colombian. With the striker earning £330,000 a week in the principality they may not be afford to keep him.
However, the Red Devils could well choose to not take up this offer. Since arriving last summer the 29-year-old has scored just four goals in 27 appearances, and doesn’t look the player he was before successive knee injuries.
Even youngster James Wilson has been playing ahead of the former Atletico Madrid star at times during the campaign.
Even with this drop in price the principality based side could have some trouble trying to find a buyer for their forward. Only top clubs are likely to be able to afford his wages, and Falcao isn’t putting in the performances needed to attract their interest.
