To say Radamel Falcao’s future at Manchester United currently looks bleak would be an understatement.
Falcao even played for Man United’s U21s earlier this month, summing up a dramatic fall from grace for a striker who was once considered one of the world’s best.
@PeoplesPerson_ £20m tops. Anything above that will be Father Christmas stuff

@PeoplesPerson_ he’d cost whoever decided to sign him their job

@PeoplesPerson_ Worth a gamble at £20 mil but I can't see it happening, he'll score a ton of goals abroad

@PeoplesPerson_ around 20m would be the asking price given his current form, but even thats a tad expensive considering his age

@PeoplesPerson_ £40-43M. Should gamble and sign him any day. He's a proven world class footballer.

It seems as if fans would be happy for United to pay around £20m for Falcao but even that would be steep for a player who has made little to no impact this season.
At the moment, Falcao is living off his reputation alone and that won’t earn him a permanent move, especially when you consider he is on the best part (if not more than) £250,000 a week.
