Falcao to exit United?

Cape Town - Colombia striker Radamel Falcao's agent says he is uncertain whether his client will stay at Manchester United next season, reports Football411.

The 28-year-old joined the Red Devils on loan from Monaco at the start of the season, but injuries and stiff competition from Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie has seen his opportunities and impact limited.

Jorge Mendes, who also represents Cristiano Ronaldo and United goalkeeper David de Gea, told Sky Sports Italia that Falcao was one of the world's best.

"He is a fantastic player, and I think it's very difficult for Manchester United fans they have an absolutely brilliant player, one of the very best in the world, who would without any doubt play 90 minutes of the match, every time, with any other club," he said.

"The truth is, right now we don't know what will happen. What we do know is that he will play in one of the very best clubs in the world next season, whether that is Manchester United or not.

"I am 100 per cent sure of that. But you know how football works we need to wait a little. We'll see what happens."

Falcao has scored just three times since joining the United, and will need to find the net more often if he is convince the club to pay Monaco the already-agreed £44 million transfer fee and permanently take over his substantial wages.

The striker played no part in United 1-0 loss at home to Southampton on Sunday, with Louis van Gaal opting to field Angel di Maria up front in the Argentinean's first match back from injury.
