Incredibly, Manchester United have managed to loan Radamel Falcao from Monaco for the 2014-15 season.

United have reportedly agreed a £6m loan deal and will have the option to sign the striker permanently at the end of the season.

The striker is currently earning £300k-a-week but United will only be paying part of those wages.

Falcao hasn’t enjoyed his time with Monaco after signing for close to £50m last summer. He scored 9 goals in 17 league appearances.

However, his scoring record before moving to France was significantly better.

The 28-year-old scored 34 goals in 43 games in his first season for Porto, after signing from River Plate. In his second season he scored 38 goals in 42 games. Then he signed for Atletico Madrid, where he scored 36 goals in his first season and 34 in his second.
