Man United yet to decide Radamel Falcao future, say Monaco
Monaco say that Manchester United have not yet decided if they want to buy Radamel Falcao on a permanent deal
Manchester United have still not decided whether they are going to extend Radamel Falcao’s stay at Old Trafford beyond the summer, Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has said.
The Colombia international has endured a stuttering season with the Red Devils thus far after joining the club on a season-long loan deal from the Ligue 1 outfit last summer.
There has been plenty of speculation linking Falcao with a move away from Old Trafford at the end of the season, with Premier League rivals Liverpool reportedly interested in tempting the 29-year-old forward to Anfield.
Now, Monaco chief Vasilyev has claimed that the Red Devils have still not decided whether to excercise their option to buy Falcao on a permanent deal this summer.
“I saw Manchester United’s board last Sunday and they’ve not decided whether to use Falcao’s purchase clause,” he told Nice Matin.
“It’s not his best season, but they kept the opportunity to make a decision at the end of the season.”
Falcao has scored four goals and made four assists in 22 Premier League games for Manchester United so far this season. He has not scored for Louis van Gaal’s side since the 3-1 win over Leicester back in January.
