Colombian international Falcao has joined Manchester United in a £6m season-long loan deal.

Manchester United completed the transfer after the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal rejected the chance of signing the AS Monaco forward. Liverpool also showed an interest in the striker earlier this month, but they ended up signing Mario Balotelli. Falcao became the highest earner in the history of Premier League and will earn in the region of £340,000-a-week.

 

Radamel Falcao said: “I am delighted to be joining Manchester United on loan this season. Manchester United is the biggest club in the world and is clearly determined to get back to the top. I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal and contributing to the team’s success at this very exciting period in the club’s history.”

Louis van Gaal said: “I am delighted Radamel has joined us on loan this season. He is one of the most prolific goalscorers in the game. His appearance-to-goal ratio speaks for itself and, when a player of this calibre becomes available, it is an opportunity not to be missed.”

Falcao played 19 games for Monaco last season, scoring 11 goals. Falcao became the sixth major signing of the summer after the arrivals of Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind, Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo. The arrival of Angel Di Maria and Falcao show Manchester United can still attract big names even without Champions League football.
