Manchester United to make striker deal permanent

According to media in Spain, Manchester United are set to turn Radamel Falcao’s loan deal in to a permanent arrangement.

Paying €10m to bring the forward to Old Trafford on loan, the total fee to sign the Colombian will be €50m.

It is being claimed that the vice-president of Monaco, Vadim Vasilyev has set up a meeting with super-agent Jorge Mendes in Dubai to start the process of finalising the transfer after United manager Louis van Gaal gave his approval to the move.

Struggling for fitness when he first arrived in England, Falcao’s desire to play at the World Cup in Brazil after undergoing surgery in January is believed to have been at the root of his problems this season.

United are confident that the hitman has moved past his injury problems and will be able to play an active role in chasing down Champions League football this season.

More on this story is expected in the coming days.
