Manchester United star Ashley Young says goodbye to Falcao via Twitter

Radamel Falcao

Radamel Falcao will leave Manchester United to return to Monaco.

Manchester United winger Ashley Young has sent a message via Twitter to departing star Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian signed on loan from AS Monaco on transfer deadline day, a move which looked an astute piece of business for the Red Devils despite the fact he was coming off a serious knee injury.

The gamble failed to pan out, with Falcao scoring just four goals for United, and is now returning to the French side.

Despite his struggles to recapture his prolific best, he remained a popular member of the squad, as Young's message to the forward shows.

Young and the rest of his United teammates will simply wish they won't be playing against the striker in the Premier League next season.

The Mirror reported Falcao is keen on a transfer to champions Chelsea, who are in need of a replacement for Didier Drogba.

The Manchester Evening News had also reported he has been linked in Spain with a return to former side Atletico Madrid, with who he won the Europa League.
