Manchester United fans have been split down the middle as to whether or not the club should sign Radamel Falcao permanently in the summer.
The Colombian was brought to Old Trafford on loan from Monaco last year amid a flurry of excitement but a combination of injuries and lack of form has contributed to a disappointing spell at United for Falcao so far this season.
We asked United fans whether they would bring in the former Atletico Madrid and Porto player permanently next season and it’s clear how polarised the fans currently are about him:
Just saw @PeoplesPerson_ question re signing Falcao. I’m absolutely staggered that anyone is saying that we should.
— Richard Cann (@RichardCann76) February 9, 2015
@PeoplesPerson_ of course not
— Hussein Rimmani (@HusseinRimmani) February 9, 2015
@PeoplesPerson_ nope. Buy dyabla/lacazette for cheaper
— DAVE SAVES (@DAVlDDEGEA) February 9, 2015
@PeoplesPerson_ If United can strike a cheap deal to Monaco, yes
— Alex Boss (@AlexBoss19) February 9, 2015
@PeoplesPerson_ I still think we should. But we should also renegotiate the fee and reduce it drastically from 44 million pounds.

@PeoplesPerson_ No way in hell should we even be open to the slightest suggestion.
— Hamish Dwyer (@HamishD10) February 9, 2015
@PeoplesPerson_ Yes, but we might be able to reduce the price.

@PeoplesPerson_ Not after yesterday’s poor showing. Wouldn’t pay anything above 20 mil.

United and Monaco have reportedly agreed a fee for Falcao should United wish to sign him but it would be hard to justify what would be a substantial fee unless his performances significantly improve towards the tail end of the season.
When fit and on form Falcao is one of the deadliest strikers in the world and United fans will be hoping he can get back to that level as they bid to secure Champions League football next season.
