As Colombian striker Radamel Falcao’s time appears to be coming to an end at Old Trafford following the lack of impact he has made since his loan from Monaco, it seems highly unlikely that the Red Devils will use their option of making him a permanent United player next summer.

The 29-year-old has scored only four goals in 19 appearances for United, and another poor showing last Monday night against Preston has former United star Paul McGrath claiming the Falcao is not happy at the club and that his time there may be coming to an end.

“Radamel Falcao is not getting the sort of service he would at other clubs he’s played for,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “United have been a bit nervous and a lot of the team has changed from next season.

“He goes on runs and the ball just doesn’t come to him or it comes to him too quickly and it runs through to the goalkeeper.

“He thrives on little things in the box and even those things aren’t coming off for him at the moment.

“Maybe it’s the pace of English football or the Premier League, but he’s out of sorts.

“It’s certainly not working out for him. You can see his reaction when he got bought off last night, he’s not happy at the club.”
