Manchester United morning news: Falcao deal reportedly done, is £24m Coentrao next?

Old Trafford 2

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester United.

Reports claim Manchester United have done a deal to sign Radamel Falcao permanently for £43 million in the summer.

The striker linked up with United on an initial loan deal from Monaco during the summer transfer window.

United were thought to have had a first option to buy agreement put in that deal which they appear to have used.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal hopes Angel Di Maria and Falcao can persuade Fabio Coentrao to join the club according to the Express.

The Real Madrid defender was linked with United when David Moyes was in charge but went on to sign a new deal at the Bernabeu.

Coentrao shares the same agent as the Manchester United summer signings.

Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of poaching senior physio Matt Radcliffe from Southampton.

The Manchester Evening News has claimed that Southampton’s game against Spurs this weekend will be his last with the club.

He’s expected to meet up with Louis van Gaal next week.
