Falcao's last goodbye?

Cape Town - Striker Radamel Falcao's latest social media post is another hint that his time at Manchester United is done. 

Playing in the final home game against Arsenal, Falcao seemed to confirm to fans what most were already thinking - that his time at Old Trafford was up.

The 29-year-old Colombian came to United with a hugely impressive record but has failed to adapt to the conditions in England like he has done in Portugal, Spain and France in previous years.

Falcao's Manchester United record (just four goals in 18 appearances) is simply not good enough for the club trying to compete with Europe's very best. 

Although there have been no official confirmations, speculation has almost ended regarding Falcao's career in Manchester - it would be a major shock if Louis van Gaal sanctioned a £43 million move to keep the Colombian at the club permanently.

Falcao enjoyed some good support from the United faithful and thank fans in what appears to be his final farewell.
