Cape Town - Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has suggested striker Radamel Falcao could stay at Manchester United beyond the conclusion of his loan spell.

The Colombia international, 29, is currently on a season-long loan from the principality outfit, but has struggled to make a success of his time at Old Trafford.

Falcao has netted just four goals in 25 appearances this season, leading many to believe that United would not look to make his stay permanent in the off-season.

However, Vasilyev has poured cold water on such speculation, saying a decision is yet to be made by the Red Devils.

"I saw Manchester United leaders last Sunday and they have not yet decided if they will exercise the option [to sign Falcao permanently]," Vasilyev told Nice-Matin.

"It's not his best season but they retain the opportunity to talk at the end of the season. We are not in any further negotiations for the moment, even if big clubs are interested.

"The decision is in Manchester, then we will talk with the player to find out what he wants."

Falcao has in the past been linked with Manchester United, while Liverpool were also credited with an interest in the player this week.
