Monaco open bidding for Man United loanee

Monaco have admitted they have started taking enquiries for Radamel Falcao, as reported by the Express.

Falcao joined Manchester United on a season-long loan deal on deadline day last summer, but is yet to impress at Old Trafford and has so far failed to live up to his reputation as one of the world’s most prolific strikers.

The Colombian’s form since arriving in England has raised questions as to whether United would be willing to meet Monaco’s £40million price tag to make Falcao’s Red Devils stay a permanent one.

But Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has confirmed that the club has received contact from a number of other big clubs about his signature, and that the French giants are not worried about whether United do make an offer for him or not.

He said: “We have received interest from other big clubs, as we await Manchester United’s decision.”

And Vasilyev also hinted that, despite accepting Falcao will be leaving the club permanently in the summer, he wishes the club were able to hold on to him.

“If we still had him we would be challenging at the top of the table,” he admitted.

“He started the season well and we are missing some efficiency upfront.”

Since joining the Red Devils, the 29-year-old striker has netted just four goals in 16 Premier League outings.
