Cape Town - Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has warned he will only be signing a permanent deal with the club if they can assure him a more prominent first-team role.

According to the Telegraph, the Colombian wants to stay at Old Trafford, but admitted he is frustrated by the fact he has been confined to a substitute’s role by niggling injuries and a lack of match sharpness.

“From my point of view, yes, I want to stay but obviously I have to analyse the situation,” Falcao said.

“I’ll see if I play more and see what decision the board takes. But from my point of view, I really want to stay.

“I feel ready for the moment that the team needs me. Whenever I have the opportunity to come on I try to do my best for the coach and I try to help the team.

“Every footballer wants to play, no one is happy when they are not playing, when they are on the bench, but whenever I am given the opportunity, whether it be for five, 10, 20 or 90 minutes, I have to give my best.”

“We have a group of strikers who are very good and that's good for everyone. That means there is always a level of competition between us, healthy competition, and obviously I am very happy with how the team is doing.”
