Falcao in tears over Old Trafford ordeal

Cape Town - Out of form Colombian striker, Radamel Falcao, has been reduced to tears as his Manchester United career appears to be all but over.

The Colombian arrived at Manchester United on a high-profile loan move from Monaco but has failed to repeat his goal-scoring form in the red of Manchester United.

Falcao's mentor, Silvano Espindola, told AS Colombia that the former Atletico Madrid star is unhappy with life on the bench at Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old striker, who has netted just four league goals for United, has had several conversations with Espindola - tearful discussions regarding the player's uneasy situation in Manchester.

"I am not going to tell you that he feels happy because he isn't." Espindola is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

"We speak many times and we cry together. It is not an easy situation because every player wants to play and every goalscorer wants to score goals."

The Daily Star also report that Falcao's asking price could drop from from £43 million to £25m million after a poor first season in England.

Falcao last started a match on February 28 and has played just 38 minutes in the Red Devils last five fixtures - all from the bench.
