Balague: Radamel Falcao has passed Manchester United medical

Manchester United are nearing the transfer of Radamel Falcao.

Manchester United are nearing a deal to sign Radamel Falcao.

The Red Devils have been granted an extension to file the paper work for the loan deal to the Premier League, with the 11pm 'deadline' passing.

Rumours had sprung up that the Colombian had failed a medical, yet these have been widely dismissed.

Spanish football journalist Gulleim Balague has now confirmed the striker has passed his medical, revealing so via his Twitter page:

The striker is expected to seal a loan deal, with a view to buy at the end of the current season.

Danny Welbeck is set to sign for Arsenal, with his switch dependent on Falcao's confirmation as a United player.
