United could opt against signing Falcao on a permanent contract

Manchester United could ignore the chance to sign on-loan striker Radamel Falcao on a permanent transfer at the end of the season, according to a report.

The Colombian international joined the Red Devils from AS Monaco over the summer on a season-long loan, and has since then failed to integrate into first-team setup due to lack of match fitness.

According to The Sun, United boss Louis van Gaal could opt against making a permanent offer for the talented striker due to his pale form and inability to maintain long-term fitness.

Radamel's loan deal has a clause which would allow United to sign him on a permanent deal for a fee of around £44m.
