Falcao could leave Manchester United this season - here's how

Fresh reports suggest there is yet another clause in the Colombian's loan deal.

So there is another twist in the Radamel Falcao story, according to the Daily Mail.

Indeed, the newspaper have reported that there is a clause in the Colombian's loan move to Manchester United that allows the club to send him back to Monaco this season - if he gets injured.

Falcao missed this summer's World Cup and a large portion of last campaign due to a serious knee injury and United are said to have taken a sort of insurance against that happening at Old Trafford,

Indeed, should he suffer another serious problem, his loan deal will be terminated and the 28-year-old will be sent back to France.

The same report does claim, however, that Man United can sign him on a permanent deal at the end of the current season for £50 million.

Falcao's move, then, is already proving difficult to keep track of. So many different reports suggest so many different things, with one previously claiming that the move will be made permanent if he scores five goals for the Old Trafford side.

So what happens if the striker scores five goals and then gets a serious injury...?

Falcao made his first start for United earlier today at Leicester City.
