Doubts cast over Radamel Falcao’s permanent move to Man Utd
Manchester United have doubts over converting Radamel Falcao’s loan deal into a permanent transfer, according to reports.
When the Monaco striker joined on transfer deadline day in a £6m season-long switch it was suggested that the arrangement was probably in place for the Colombia international to extend his stay.
But several sources are reporting that United’s hierarchy are no longer sure Falcao is the man for them.
Manager Louis van Gaal is not convinced the former Atletico Madrid and Porto man can cope with the physical rigours of the Premier League, claims the Daily Mail.
The report claims the Dutchman is concerned Falcao “may not be physically capable of sustained action”.
Those suggestions are backed up by a similar report in The Sun, which claims that United “are wavering over whether to make Radamel Falcao’s loan deal a permanent transfer”.
The 28-year-old currently has just a single goal in five games for the Red Devils. He is currently out with a calf injury.
