Radamel Falcao is happy at Manchester United

Deadline Day in the summer was an incredibly exciting for Manchester United fans, as they had seen the summer spending spree bringing in the likes of Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo topped off with the capture of genuine superstar Radamel Falcao.

Yes, he is a genuine big name in world football, but his time at Old Trafford is yet to see him hit the heights of goalscoring form that saw him build such an impressive reputation over the last few years. He scored hat-fulls of goals at Porto, Atletico Madrid and AS Monaco.

"Manchester United is a very big club, one of the biggest in the world"

However, since joining Manchester United on a £265,000-a-week season-long loan he has only managed to find the net three times in 14 appearances. Not really the return most would have been expecting from one with such pedigree.

A lack of goals, and general form, coupled with being dropped by Louis van Gaal for the recent clash with Southampton, led to speculation regarding his future with the Red Devils. More than one report suggested he could well be leaving only six months after arriving - even his agent, Jorge Mendes, helped add to the speculation.

But the 28-year-old has now gone public over his situation and has insisted he has no problems at Manchester United. Falcao said he was still very happy playing under Falcao and had no intention of leaving Old Trafford any time soon.

"Manchester United is a very big club, one of the biggest in the world and I am so happy to wear the jersey. I always dreamed of being part of a club like this, and it is a privilege for me to be here," he is quoted as saying by The Independent.

"The supporters are really passionate and since the very first moment I arrived they have given a lot of support to me, I am very happy about that."

Falcao looks set to be given another chance in the starting XI by Van Gaal for United's FA Cup clash with minnows Cambridge United on Friday. Playing time is necessary if he is to find his best form once again, as this is still his first season back after missing the second half of last term and the World Cup with a ruptured cruciate ligament.
