There is a certain irony in the fact that Radamel Falcao couldn’t buy a goal for Manchester United right now despite earning upwards of £250,000 a week at Old Trafford.
Once revered as one of the world’s best strikers, Falcao’s fall from grace has been rapid and absolute.
However, some fans still maintain the hope that Falcao could yet recapture his best form in a United shirt. With this in mind, we asked our Twitter followers if a goal against Liverpool on Sunday could kickstart his United career:

@PeoplesPerson_ I hate to say it but Falcao is not for us. He may recapture his form next season but he would be playing somewhere else.

@PeoplesPerson_ Would love to see him score, but it’s too little too late. Just hasn’t happened for him, not worth the money or the risk.

@PeoplesPerson_ Thinks it’s too late now. Just need to put it down to an educated gamble that didn’t work out. Need to move for Depay now.

@PeoplesPerson_ If he scores Sunday and plays every game going forward he could keep us in the top 4!

Most fans feel Falcao has ran out of time to impress at United and that the club must chalk down his spell at the club as a failure but there are those still holding out in hope he can still come good, despote time being completely against him.
The situation is a desperately sad one when you consider how excited fans were when Falcao flew to Manchester on deadline day last summer. Unfortunately, a couple of serious knee injuries appears to have robbed the player of his best form.
