When Manchester United signed Falcao on loan, quite a few heads were turned. This was a genuine world class forward with staggering scoring statistics now playing at Old Trafford.
Come to the present and United fans – at least majority – are glad that they’re not making the move for the Colombian permanent. Falcao has had a torrid time in England, scoring just four goals in 29 outings for the Reds and looking like a shadow of the player who tormented defenses for Porto, Atletico and Monaco.
However, to say that he’s done for is premature. After all, he missed the World Cup thanks to a season ending injury and it does take time to get back to your best. With Chelsea now linked with the Monaco forward, Jose Mourinho just might pull off one of the deals of the summer if he can land the Colombian, especially if he shows that last season was just a blip.
