Falcao wants to stay with Manchester United


Manchester United striker, Radamel Falcao, has said that he will only sign a permanent deal with the squad, if they give him a position in a first team role.

Falcao has been struggling with a serious knee injury in recent weeks, and has only played in three games since the start of October.

He said that he wants to stay at Old Trafford, but he has admitted that he is frustrated to have been positioned in a substitute role.

“From my point of view, yes, I want to stay but obviously I have to analyse the situation, I’ll see if I play more and see what decision the board takes. But from my point of view, I really want to stay. ” Falcao said.

“I feel ready for the moment that the team needs me. Whenever I have the opportunity to come on I try to do my best for the coach and I try to help the team.

“Every footballer wants to play, no one is happy when they are not playing, when they are on the bench, but whenever I am given the opportunity, whether it be for five, 10, 20 or 90 minutes, I have to give my best.” 

“We have a group of strikers who are very good and that's good for everyone. That means there is always a level of competition between us, healthy competition, and obviously I am very happy with how the team is doing.”

United coach, Louis Van Gaal, has said that Falcao needs to prove his fitness after his knee injury, to be granted match time.
