Last night it looked like Manchester City and Arsenal were in for Falcao, but instead the Columbian striker has moved to Manchester United in a one year loan deal.
Surprising is not the word – you would think he would have more aspirations than to be at a club that’s failed to win a single game this season and isn’t in the Champions League, but alas it’s clear that he is a mercenary of the biggest order.
Who else would join AS Monaco (a team in a rubbish league) and then Manchester United. Footballers get paid obscene amounts these days and you would think that ambition and glory would count for something – obviously not to Falcao though.
Unbelievable really. At least at Manchester City you’d be in the hunt for trophies, and at Arsenal it would be a similar story. But Falcao is just interested in making as much money as he can.
There was a part of me that did think we could bring in Falcao as our massive deadline day signing (just like we did with Özil last summer) but it looks like stubborn Arsene has got his way and will use Sanogoals for the foreseeable future.
The Manchester United fans are as pathetic as ever, constantly retweeting a post I clearly made in jest a few days ago:

However, the joke’s on them as Manchester United will still struggle to get in the Top 4 this season. They have Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Juan Mata, Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao. Their signings smack of sheer desperation and how can you possibly accommodate all of those forwards?
The silver lining of course is that they are spending ridiculous amounts of money, getting themselves into even more debt and they still will miss out on Champions League football next season.
