Make no mistake this is an historic signing for Manchester United. They were miles behind the rest and although they’ve done some good business in the summer window the gap looked as if it had increased between themselves and the top teams in the first few weeks of the new season.
But in the last week Manchester United have signed Angel di Maria from Real Madrid and now Radamel Falcao on an initial year long loan deal which could well become permanent. The BBC says:
Manchester United have agreed to sign Colombia striker Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco, subject to a medical.
The 28-year-old has been linked throughout the summer with a move away from the French Ligue 1 side, who he joined for £50m in May 2013
The Daily Mail reports:
Radamel Falcao signs for Manchester United in £12m season-long loan
It really is time to get very excited for Manchester United fans now because strikers don’t come much better than this guy. Checking out his highlights video is like watching a montage of the best goals of all time. He’s possibly to most exciting player in the world right nnow and is even a level up from RvP and Rooney.
The term world-class gets used to liberally these days but this man certainly fits into that category and Manchester United will be an immeasurably better with him in the side.
Question majorly be asked about how Louis van Gaal will fit all of his attacking talent into this new sites but it’s a great problem to have. We think the Wayne Rooney will drop into the number 10 role leading one matter on the periphery of the squad.
Let’s see Falcao in action. It’s truly mouth-watering
