Radamel-Falcao-140824-Celebrates-R-300

Monaco striker Radamel Falcao will join Manchester United on a season long loan, a source close to the deal told Reuters on Monday.

The 28-year-old has scored 11 goals in 20 appearances for Monaco after joining from Atletico Madrid for a fee of around €50 million last year.

Colombia international Falcao, who missed the World Cup after suffering a serious knee injury, had been linked with several top European clubs including Real Madrid.

Falcao will compete with regular striker Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie for a place in Louis van Gaal’s new-look United side.
