Manchester United’s loan addition Radamel Falcao has confirmed that he wants to stay at Old Trafford for many years going forward, despite his move only encompassing an initial agreement for one year at the Manchester side, as reported by Goal.com.
There is, however, an option on Man Utd’s part at the end of the season to sign him on a permanent basis for a fee of £35 million, and Falcao is clearly hopeful that he will impress enough for that clause to be exercised.
He said: “I am very happy to be here.
“It’s a big challenge for me, for my career, I always dreamed of being at a club like Manchester United.
“I hope to stay many years at Manchester United and make history at this club. When I was at Porto, Atletico Madrid, I always wanted to improve and I dreamed of playing at a team like this – and now I want to stay here for many years.”
The AS Monaco player made a surprise switch to the Premier League on deadline day, with few predicting that Man Utd would be in for his signature.
His transfer has come at a high cost to Louis van Gaal’s new side, with the club expected to pay the entirety of his £346,000 a week wages, a staggering sum.
Falcao missed this summer’s World Cup after suffering a knee injury playing in the French Cup for Monaco in January.
