Manchester United are not willing to commit to a deal for Colombian international striker Radamel Falcao until the player has better proven his fitness, as reported by the Daily Star.
Falcao’s arrival from Monaco on loan was widely heralded as an exceptional addition by the Old Trafford side, but he has struggled to make an impact since his move on deadline day.
The former Atletico Madrid man has been hampered by injuries, with recurring problems stopping him from playing regular first team football.
This is a worry for Man Utd, who brought Falcao in knowing that he had suffered a significant knee injury last season, and with little evidence that he had fully recovered from that.
While Man Utd have already agreed a future fee of £44 million for the player, they will judge Falcao over the next two months before deciding whether to commit to a permanent deal for the expensive but talented striker.
