Manchester United will make Falcao’s loan spell permanent in the coming days, according to Metro.
The Colombian striker has struggled with injuries since arriving on loan from Monaco in the summer, but has recently showed signs that he is back to his best fitness wise.
Reports in Spain are suggesting United are convinced Falcao is now ‘able to withstand the rigours of regular football’ and are prepared to Monaco’s £40m asking price within the next few days.
Man United manager Louis Van Gaal has given the green light for the club to make Falcao’s stay permanent after the striker netted his third goal of the season in a 1-1 draw with Stoke on New Year’s Day.
It is believed Van Gaal has been handed another £150m transfer kitty to strengthen his side this month in order to cement the Red Devil’s place in the Premier League’s top four after a year-long exile.
