Sir Alex Ferguson has denied Manchester United are considering a swap deal involving Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao and Javier Hernandez during the summer transfer window.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the £48 million-rated Colombian, with some reports suggesting the Premier League champions would be willing to offer Hernandez to sweeten any proposed deal.

Ferguson, however, has dismissed speculation linking Falcao with a switch to Old Trafford and Hernandez with a move to Madrid.

"Do you honestly believe that? You amaze me you people," the Manchester United manager said, as reported by The Sun.

Although a transfer to Manchester United may not be on the cards for Falcao, the former Porto star could arrive in the Premier League with either Chelsea or Manchester City.

The two clubs have been linked with Falcao for some time, while his hat-trick against Chelsea in the Super Cup surely placed him very much in the thoughts of Blues owner Roman Abramovich.

Falcao has scored 28 goals in 33 appearances for Atletico this season, while he has a total of 64 strikes in 83 matches for the Spanish capital club.
