The Daily Mail reports on the story that Radamel Falcao has apparently intimated to friends that he made a mistake in joining Manchester United.

And reports over the weekend suggest that Falcao could move to Juventus in the summer.
We have some sympathy for the lad. We think that he should have been given more chances to impress and gain momentum in the Manchester United first team this season – particularly with RvP misfiring.
But no player should get into a team on reputation alone. There is a sense that Falcao believes that he has a right to start regardless of form and that is never going to happen at Manchester United – particularly under a man like Van Gaal. In reality, he has been no better than RvP this season.
So, what looked like a dream signing in the autumn has turned into a nightmare and it’s hard to imagine any other outcome than the player leaving at the end of the season.
But we would still be giving him game time. At £300k a week, and with Manchester United looking as unconvincing as at any point of the season, why not give a player twice voted onto the Ballon D’Or shortlist, a chance to score some vital goals?
Sometimes LvG seems like a man of principle and, at other times, he comes across as plain stubborn. He alone decided to pay the crazy money for the player and Manchester United fans still want to see him start. So shouldn’t they be getting a little more value for money with Radamel?
Rooney and Fellaini or Rooney and Falcao up top? We think we know what most of you would want.
Manchester United fans: Could Radamel still be United’s saviour in the run in?
