London: Manchester United have agreed a sensational deal to sign Colombia striker Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan from Monaco, according to widespread British media reports on Monday. (Also read: Manchester United sign Angel Di Maria in record deal)
The prolific 28-year-old forward, who missed the World Cup with a serious knee injury, has also been linked with Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal.
But several media outlets, including the Press Association, the BBC and Sky Sports, reported that United had secured his services -- subject to a medical examination -- on the final day of the close-season transfer window.
If completed, the deal would leave United manager Louis van Gaal with a rich pool of striking talent, as Falcao would join Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford.
