Radamel Falcao could be fit to face Arsenal in the Premier League next weekend, according to Colombia manager Jose Pekerman.

The Manchester United striker was in the stands at Craven Cottage to watch Colombia win 2-1 against USA on Friday night. Falcao has struggled with fitness since arriving at Old Trafford in the summer and has started just three games for his new club.

Despite the 28-year-old's absence for the international friendly, Pekerman believes he could be ready to face the Gunners next Saturday.

"He will be one of the best players Manchester United have had and will break a lot of records in England."

Arsenal return possible

Pekerman is quoted by The Mail as saying: "There is no doubt he is in optimal condition. He's recovered very successfully. He done everything perfectly. This is a small muscular injury, it is different to the knee injury before the World Cup.

"He's in a good condition and could be ready for Arsenal. He hasn't even started yet. He will be one of the best players Manchester United have had and will break a lot of records in England."

Incredible deal

Falcao cost Louis van Gaal a significant amount when he made the one-year loan switch to the Red Devils. A wage packet of £346,000-a-week combined with a £6 million loan fee took the total up to the £20 million mark.

Manchester United have to option to make the move permanent for a reported £46 million, but Van Gaal has already stated that he doesn't think Falcao will prove his worth in time.

So far the Colombian has scored one goal for Manchester United and has struggled to recover from the serious knee injury he sustained as AS Monaco last season.
