Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has revealed that he met with Manchester United officials on Sunday to discuss Radamel Falcao's future at the club.
He also told press that Louis van Gaal is yet to come to a decision regarding what will happen at the end of the season when Facao's loan spell comes to an end.
There is a clause in the loan deal that would permit Manchester United to sign the 29-year-old for a sum of €55million, but this decision is yet to made according to Vasilyev.
"I saw Manchester United officials last Sunday and they have not yet decided if they will exercise the option.
"It's not his best season, but they've kept their right to comment at the end of the season," Vasilyev told Nice-Matin.
Struggle for form
And Vasilyev is right, it has not been Falcao's strongest season at all.
The Colmbian international has struggled to find the form that prompted the £6million loan deal, and Falcao has managed only four Premier League goals this season.
He has frequently found himself on the bench after struggling to find match fitness, and questions have been raised as to whether the former Atletico Madrid striker is good enough to play in the Premier League.
Vasilyev also revealed that the although the club are not in any negotiations with other teams, and despite his poor form, big clubs are interested in signing Falcao when his loan move at United comes to an end.
"We are not in any other negotiations, even though big clubs are interested. It's up to Manchester to decide and then we'll talk with the player to find out what he wants," he added.
