Manchester United are considering an extension for Radamel Falcao’s loan spell to keep him at the club until January reports The Mirror.
The 29-year-old’s current loan spell expires in June but Man United are unwilling to pay the £43.2m asking price from AS Monaco which is more than understandable given how poor his spell at the club has gone in comparison to expectations.
When you look at it objectively, this year was always a big risk with Falcao which ultimately hasn’t paid off but with a full pre-season under his belt, there is every chance he could come back next year as a completely different player. That’d be the hope if any deal was agreed.
It would be a special and unique situation to take Falcao on loan for another period without signing him but Louis van Gaal would never sign him on a permanent deal this summer simply because of how poor his form has been since he returned from injury.
Falcao’s future is full of uncertainty at the moment but if there is to be a scenario where he remains at United next year, it surely has to be on another loan spell because it’s impossible to justify signing him on a permanent deal just yet.
