Falcao expects 'great season' with Reds

Last Updated: Tue, 02 Sep 2014 12:17

Radamel Falcao is confident that he can help Manchester United enjoy a "great season" after completing his move from Monaco on Monday.

The 28-year-old Colombia international striker secured a beat-the-deadline move from Monaco on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal next summer.

Falcao, who made his name as a prolific striker during his spells at Porto and two seasons with Atletico Madrid, has just recovered from a cruciate knee ligament injury he suffered with the big-spending French Ligue 1 outfit last term which cost him his place at this summer's World Cup.

However he is delighted at making the move to the Premier League as he joins fellow new recruits Daley Blind, Luke Shaw, Angel di Maria, Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera who are looking to help Louis van Gaal reverse the club's flagging fortunes and at least get them back into the top-four places.

He said: "I am delighted to be joining Manchester United on loan this season.

"Manchester United is the biggest club in the world and is clearly determined to get back to the top. I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal and contributing to the team's success at this very exciting period in the club's history."

He added on MUTV: "For me, it was a dream to play in the Premier League. I always wanted to be here because this league is very good, it has very good teams and Manchester United is the best team in England. Everything is perfect for me.

"We have very top players. I admire them. I want to meet them for the first time. I am sure that this season will be great for us."

Punters may instead use their free bet to back United to use the feel-good factor from Falcao's arrival to help them pick up a first win of the new season when QPR visit Old Trafford following the two-week international break on Sunday September 14.
