Louis van Gaal: Man United couldn’t turn down Radamel Falcao chance
Louis van Gaal admits that Manchester United could not miss the opportunity to sign Radamel Falcao
Louis van Gaal admits that Manchester United could not pass up the opportunity to sign Radamel Falcao this summer.
The Red Devils wrapped up a £6m loan deal for the Monaco striker on transfer deadline day and have an option to buy the forward at the end of his temporary spell.
His appearance-to-goal ratio speaks for itself

And Van Gaal, who is still searching for his first Premier League win in charge of the Red Devils this season, was thrilled to secure the signing of the 28-year-old.
“I am delighted Radamel has joined us on loan this season,” said Van Gaal.
“He is one of the most prolific goalscorers in the game. His appearance-to-goal ratio speaks for itself and, when a player of this calibre becomes available, it is an opportunity not to be missed.”
Falcao joined Monaco last year after making 91 appearances and scoring 70 goals for Atletico Madrid.
And the former Porto striker is looking forward to working under United’s new manager.
“Van Gaal is a very good trainer with a lot of experience,” said Falcao. “I want to do the best for the team, for him and for the supporters.”
