Manchester United will attempt to renegotiate a fee with Monaco for striker Radamel Falcao should they decide to make his loan deal permanent in the summer, according to the Daily
The current agreement states that United must pay Monaco £43m in the close-season if they want to keep Falcao at Old Trafford. It is not yet clear if manager Louis van Gaal would be willing to sanction a deal, but should they decide to sign the Colombian on a permanent basis, he would want to pay a reduced price.
Falcao’s future has been called under question in recent days, with his agent Jorge Mendes stating that he may not stay at Man Utd beyond this season with other top European clubs looking to step in, while he was left out of the squad altogether for the recent 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
Despite that, he did start Saturday’s win at Queens Park Rangers, but his failure to score means that he has netted only three times since arriving at the end of August. His wages should he join permanently would be some £265,000 per week, and although Mendes is unlikely to want to re-discuss the terms of a potential deal, his options may be limited come the summer.
