Manchester United won't take up Radamel Falcao option - Edinson Cavani swap deal possible

Manchester United are unlikely to take up the option to make Radamel Falcao's loan move permanent in the summer according to the Daily Mail.

Falcao joined last summer but has failed to impress, scoring just four goals in 16 Premier League appearances. The Red Devils have the option to make his move permanent for a fee in the region of £43 million come the end of the season.


There have also been some concerns over his knee following a serious injury last season which kept him out of the World Cup.  Although his form and fitness have improved of late, now the Daily Mail say that he'll be sent back to France in the summer.

They add that his return to Ligue 1 may not be to parent club Monaco however - there is a chance that a swap deal with Paris Saint-Germain for Edinson Cavani is possible.


The Uruguayan has been the subject of transfer speculation for some time now and could be on the move in the summer - and the Mail say that Manchester United is a potential destination.


Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is likely to add another forward to his squad if Falcao leaves as expected, and Cavani could well be the man for the job.

The former Napoli ace has been playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Parc des Prince, and with Robin van Persie out of sorts this term and Wayne Rooney deployed deeper in midfield, there could be a spot open for him at Old Trafford.
