It looks as though Manchester United have agreed terms with Radamel Falcao to make his transfer from Monaco permanent.

The Colombian is on loan at Old Trafford and reports this morning say he will put pen to paper on a deal worth £200,000 a week. The fee is believed to be in the region of £43 million.

So far the former Atletico Madrid ace hasn't quite got going at Old Trafford having only just worked his way back to fitness before he was struck down by an injury that stopped him from lining up against Chelsea. He has one goal to his name so far, and it's unclear as to whether he will be able to face Manchester City on Sunday.

Despite that it seems as though his permanent move to Old Trafford is assured, with Goal claiming that 'everything is agreed'.

Transfer battle

Elsewhere in the transfer market, the Red Devils are believed to be looking at a move for Marseille midfielder Gianelli Imbula. Chelsea have also been linked with the 22-year-old, who will cost around £25 million.

He's been labelled the new Pogba by some, and it would seem both Manchester United and Chelsea will chase him after the Juventus midfielder signed a new deal in Turin last week.

Imbula is also being treated as a viable alternative to Sami Khedira who could be available next season for nothing but comes with sizeable wage demands.


Back to matters on the pitch and Wayne Rooney is line to start against Manchester City on Sunday. The striker has completed his suspension for being sent off against West Ham, and has shaken off a knock he picked up in training.
