David de Gea sent his well wishes to Radamel Falcao as the Colombian celebrated his 29th birthday. Falcao is part of an extensive Spanish speaking contingency at Manchester United that includes the likes of De Gea, Mata and Herrera, so he should feel right at home at Old Trafford.
Having now turned 29, Falcao will no doubt want to kick on with his Man United career. Time is short when it comes to football careers and now that he is on his way to 30, the Colombian will add extra pressure to himself to perform at Man United.
It’s not been the blistering start which Falcao would have wanted but he does still have some time on his hands, although that is quickly running out as there are less than three weeks now until March.
Thank you God for a year full of love from my family, friends and the fans I always count on

Will Falcao be a Man United player next season? That very much depends on what he does between now and May but his goalscoring record most certainly needs to improve.
A home fixture against Burnley tonight should be a perfect opportunity for him to kick on and hopefully get back amongst the goals.
