He’s only been at Monaco for a few months after signing for squillions of squid in the summer. So it seems ridiculous that he would already be considering another move.
Yet there is rarely smoke without fire and rumours persist that the Colombian international, Radamel Falcao, could be open to a winter transfer.
The manager of Manchester United, David Moyes, is even interested in signing Radamel Falcao, striker of Monaco, and sent scouts to Brussels, where on Thursday held a private meeting between the teams of Belgium and Colombia,
The question is where such a player would fit into Manchester United – a team with debatable weaknesses but surely not in attack. Robin van Persie is still young enough to play at the top level for a couple more seasons and Wayne Rooney is playing his best football in years.
Add the talents of Danny Welbeck and Chicharito to that roster and you’re looking at one of the best forward lines in club football.
So we think that the suggestion of Falcao coming to Manchester United is a little far-fetched. Surely David Moyes would want to concentrate his transfer kitty on the midfield areas before looking for more forwards?
But perhaps Moyes simply wants to buy any available world-class talent. Arsene Wenger already had great attacking midfielders at Arsenal last season but still signed Mesut Ozil when he had the chance. The club has subsequently gone from strength to strength. With Falcao in the ranks, Manchester United could play three up front, in what could amount to a bewitching attacking formation.
Let’s see Falcao in action. Manchester United fans, do you think this guy would be a good signing, or should Moyesy be looking at the midfield? Or both? Or neither?
