Falcao Joins Manchester United on Loan

Tue, 02 Sep 2014 09:50:00 +0000

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Striker Radamel Falcao has joined Manchester United on a season long loan from Monaco. 

United will reportedly pay Monaco between five and six million pounds for the striker and have an option to buy Falcao at the end of the loan period.

The transfer required an extension past the deadline, allowed by Premier League rules when all three parties are committed to finalizing the deal. 

Despite an injury-shortened 2013-14 season, Falcao scored nine goals in 17 games for Monaco. The injury also kept him out of the World Cup for his native Colombia. Prior to his season with Monaco, Falcao scored a combined 52 goals in two years with Atletico Madrid.
