Jorge Mendes backs Radamel Falcao to prove his worth at Manchester United

Jorge Mendes insists that Radamel Falcao will find his best form for Manchester United before the end of the season.

Falcao joined the Red Devils on loan over the summer but has struggled to find his feet so far. Now doubts are being cast over whether Manchester United will opt to activate the £43 million buy-out clause in his £265,000-per-week contract.


The on-loan Monaco forward has just four Premier League goals to his name in 15 appearances, and will be looking to add to his tally against West Ham this afternoon. However Mendes believes that it is only a matter of time before the 28-year-old finds his best form again.

“Falcao is a Manchester United player,” he said. “Falcao will become Falcao again. He’ll be a great player with United. The problem is that in football you have a short memory.


“When a player is injured, after six or seven months without competing, people forget, but in the end the player is the same."

Falcao's form has been attributed by some to a serious knee injury which forced him to miss the World Cup over the summer, although it looks as though he's getting up to full speed now. 


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has previously hit out at the striker's fitness, but he's featured in all but one of their last six games, scoring twice in the process.

"Falcao is a top player who will leave his mark on United’s season," Mendes continued. "He will help them a lot and they’ll be very much better with him."
