Falcao Relishes Man United Challenge

Radamel Falcao is relishing the challenge of turning out for Manchester United following his transfer deadline day season-long loan move from Monaco.
The 28-year-old Colombia striker was put in front of the media for the first time since arriving at Old Trafford, along with fellow new signing Daley Blind and manager Louis van Gaal, and could make his United debut in Sunday’s English Premier League home clash with QPR.
Falcao told Sky Sports News: “I’m glad to be here. It’s a big challenge for me and for my career. I always dreamed to be in a club like Manchester United.”
The loan fee for Falcao was thought to be between between £5m and £6m when he joined United, who have an option to buy. Although he had been struggling with a knee injury, Falcao confirmed he is on his way back to full fitness.
He added: “Yes, I feel well, I started to play a month ago with Monaco and I improved in the last month a lot. I scored a goal and it’s important for a striker (to score goals). I’m confident with my physical condition and I am comfortable with my knee.”
The former Atletico Madrid striker is looking forward to playing for the club and being part of the team this season, which he believes will make more of an impression than last term where they failed to qualify for Europe after finishing seventh.
