Radamel Falcao has declared that his target is to win the Premier League title with Manchester United.

The Colombia international joined the Red Devils on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day last week, costing United a reported £10m.

The 28-year-old has won two Europa League crowns and the Copa del Rey during spells at Porto and Atletico Madrid before moving to Monaco last summer.

And the new signing is desperate to test himself against the Premier League’s best, while helping Louis van Gaal’s side win the 21st top-flight crown.

“[My target is] to score goals and win titles,” Falcao told FourFourTwo.

“The aim this season is to win the title. It is important for me to help my club and Colombia as we prepare for the Copa America and the next World Cup for 2018.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world. The best players are there and you get to challenge yourself each week against the best.

“That is important for a player, like myself, who is looking to improve, score more goals and win trophies. This is a great opportunity for me.”

United are still waiting for their first Premier League win under new manager Louis van Gaal.
