Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has revealed he “really wants to stay” with the Lancashire club past his loan spell this season, reports BBC
The Colombian international, 28, joined Manchester United on loan from French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco on deadline day, but hasn’t made the desired impact so far, scoring just once in eight appearances.
His manager Louis Van Gaal recently claimed Falcao was only fit enough to play 20 minutes per game, but does still have him in his plans this season when he’s back to being 100%. And the talented front man has revealed he wants to stay at the club past this summer, with United having a £43M buying option clause.
“I am very happy in this city, in this club. I really want to stay. I’d like to carry on (here) but I have to analyse the situation, see if I play more and see what decision the board takes. I feel ready for the moment that the team needs me. I am sure there will be more opportunities to play,” he said.
