Radamel Falcao says he is happy with life at Manchester United and in the Premier League

Radamel Falcao

Falcao is currently on loan from Monaco but reports have suggested the move could be a permanent one.

Radamel Falcao has hinted he is more satisfied with playing in the Premier League for Manchester United than he was in the French League with Monaco. 

The Colombian star signed for United towards the end of the transfer window in the summer on a lucrative loan deal, with talk that it could be made permanent, with a fee in excess of £40 million expected to be paid if such a deal materialises.

Falcao seems to be finding his feet at United. Having struggled for fitness and having to settle for appearances off the bench under Louis van Gaal, the striker has been getting more game time from the start - recently finding the net against Aston Villa and Stoke City to salvage a point for his side - taking his goal tally for the season to three.

In an interview with ManUtd.com the striker said: "It's more attractive than the French league. Defenders are stronger and more aggressive. In a good way, you know? It's intense and, well, overall just more physical."

He arrived at Old Trafford with an incredible reputation for the goals he scored during his time at Porto and Atletico Madrid, and after a slow start he appears to be showing signs of the form that made him one of the most admired strikers in the world prior to a serious knee injury he suffered during his time at Monaco, and appears to be content with life in the city as well.

He added: "My family are comfortable. We're enjoying life in Manchester and here at the club. The people have been great with me, with my family. We're happy and very grateful."

It seems as though the 28-year-old is comfortable in the North West of England and doesn't seem to be any rush to make a return to Monaco. It's probably the biggest suggestion yet that he would like to make his loan move to Old Trafford a permanent one.
