Whilst Radamel Falcao has only joined United on a loan deal, it seems clear that the striker is thinking about his long-term future at the club, and can’t wait to get started.

“I feel well, I started to play two months ago with Monaco and I’ve improved in the last month a lot,” he said. “I have scored goals and that’s important to a striker. I am confident with my physical form and I am comfortable with my knee. This is a new process, a new team and this year some new players have come in,” Falcao continued. “I think Manchester United will build a big team this season and in future seasons. I would like to be here and to be part of this project. I feel very good in myself and I am very happy to be here. I’ve had a great welcome. When you talk about a settling-in period, it makes it very easy when you are surrounded by quality players. I can’t wait to get started.”
