All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from Old Trafford…

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao is craving his first goal in the red of his new club.

The Colombian international made his debut in the victory over Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, but despite United winning 4-0 the on-loan forward did not get off the mark.

However, he hopes that changes soon, as he revealed in quotes published by the Independent.

“It is an extraordinary stadium, a legendary stadium and I am happy to get the win,” the 28-year-old said. “I will enjoy this moment.

“I almost scored. The goalkeeper was good. I hope to score the next game.”

That next game is against Leicester City, and the Foxes will have watched this new-look United side with a very different feeling to those who saw them struggle for large parts of last season.

In other news, the Express has published information from Forbes which claims Falcao will make £21.8million this year with just £1.8million coming from endorsements.

If true, that means the United forward could be on as much as £380,000-a-week, although that is nothing more than speculation.

It would however mean Falcao is by far the highest-earning player currently at Old Trafford.
