Man United transfers: Radamel Falcao eyes long-term Red Devils stay
Radamel Falcao wants to stay at Manchester United beyond his loan spell
Radamel Falcao is hoping to extend his Manchester United stay beyond his current loan spell.
The Colombia international has struggled with calf and knee problems since joining United on a season-long loan, limiting his impact to one goal in eight appearances.
However, the 28-year-old striker is keen to stay at the 20-time English champions beyond his loan spell, stressing that he is enjoying life in Manchester.
“I am very happy in this city, in this club and I am enjoying it here. I really want to stay,” Falcao said.
“From my point of view, I’d like to carry on but obviously I have to analyse the situation, see if I play more and see what decision the board takes.”
Falcao hasn’t started a game for United since their victory over Everton in October, but the striker is prepared to wait for his chance.
“Every footballer wants to play, no one is happy when they are not playing, when they are on the bench, but whenever I am given the opportunity, whether it be for five, 10, 20 or 90 minutes, I have to give my best,” Falcao added.
“I feel ready for the moment that the team needs me. Whenever I have the opportunity to come on I try to do my best for the coach and I try to help the team.”
