Radamel Falcao has revealed that he is very proud to be a Manchester United player and that he has been in talks with the club for months.

“I am very proud to be at Manchester United,” he said. “We have been in talks with the club for some months and, in the end, we were able to reach an agreement with Monaco on the last day of the transfer deadline.”

Falcao hasn’t met his team mates yet but is particularly impressed with fellow new signing, Angel di Maria.

“I haven’t had the opportunity to speak with the players but, although they are stars, they are also footballers that play for the team to achieve the common goals of the group,” he continued. “I am sure this will be the basis of our success and in any team that wants to achieve important things. Angel is a fantastic player. I love the way he plays, I really do. I am very excited to be a team-mate of his and also to be part of Manchester United.”
