Radamel Falcao reacts on Twitter to sealing dramatic Manchester United move

Radamel Falcao used social media to express his excitement at moving to Manchester United.

Colombian striker Radamel Falcao has expressed his delight at becoming a Manchester United player.

After the move was confirmed, a flurry of social media activity began, not only from the club but from the forward himself.

Falcao took to Twitter to express his delight at becoming Manchester United's new number nine, and thanking all involved in making the dream move a reality.

The striker also made a point of thanking all at Monaco, who permitted the deal to happen and brought him to the club last summer from Atletico Madrid.

The wording of his message suggests he has closed the chapter on his time at Monaco, and hopes the deal to United can be made permanent.

This will be largely reliant on success at Old Trafford, and staying fit and healthy throughout the season. If that happens, United may look back on Falcao's deadline day addition as the moment everything changed for the better.
