Misfiring striker to have crunch talks over Manchester United future

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao is set for crunch talks over his future this week, Mirror reports.

Falcao’s agent Jorge Mendes will be in discussions with the Red Devils’ hierarchy on whether they are intending to sign the on-loan striker, who has not made the expected impact for a player being paid £265,000-a-week.

The Colombian ace made the switch from Monaco to Old Trafford last summer on transfer deadline day, eight months after suffering an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury that kept him out of the World Cup.

But although the former Atletico Madrid hitman insists he is now fully fit, he has struggled for form with United this season.

Falcao has failed to score in his last four games, and although his manager Louis van Gaal is keen on keeping the 29-year-old, it is the board who will decided whether he stays at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, United are also talking to Mendes in regards to extending David de Gea’s contract, in the hope they can ward of Real Madrid from trying to lure the goalkeeper to the Santiago Bernabeu.
