Manchester United concerned Radamel Falcao is not good enough

Manchester United coaches and officials are growingly concerned that Radamel Falcao will not meet expectation during his loan spell at the club, reports the Sunday People.

It is understood that Louis van Gaal currently has no intention of paying £44 million to make the loan deal from AS Monaco permanent. The manager has, however, given Falcao until April to convince him otherwise.

The Ligue 1 side have already started sounding out other clubs with regards to Falcao after Manchester United made it clear that Falcao would have to improve if he was to stay at Old Trafford beyond this season. Real Madrid would be AS Monaco's first port of call with few other clubs capable of meeting the asking price.

Huge asking price

Falcao also boasts wages of £265,000-a-week, which the Red Devils agreed to pay in full along with a £6 million fee to agree a loan deal on the last day of the summer transfer window.

Despite his proven goal scoring record at Porto and Atletico Madrid, Falcao has not impressed during his short stint in the Premier League. A serious knee injury last season has led to several other problems, limiting his opportunities thus far.

Injury issues

He returned to the team against Hull City yesterday, coming off the bench to play the final 20 minutes but spurned an excellent opportunity to make it 4-0. In five starts, Falcao has managed just one goal.

Robin van Persie has also been out of sorts, but his excellent performance against the Tigers, capped with a terrific goal, has put threatens to firmly put him as Van Gaal's first choice striker.
