Transfer balls: Chelsea and Liverpool fight to spend a fortune of Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao
Talking Balls wonders how much Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao is worth? The Colombian earns £265,000-a-week at Manchester United. Given that Harry Kane is on around £35,000 a week at Spurs, it’s looks like failing Falcao is the world’s most-overpaid footballer.
Barring a massive change in form and United manager Louis Van Gaal losing his mind, it’s pretty unlikely United will stump up the £43million to make Falcao’s loan deal permanent. So. If not United for Falcao, then what?
Today the Daily Mail says Falcao will be “offered” to Liverpool. That conversation should go a little like this:
Falcao agent: “Dear, Liverpool would you like to blow a massive chaunk of your transfer budget on Falcao and £1m a month in wages?”
The Daily Mirror adds: “Radamel Falcao ‘wants to leave Man United in the summer – even if offered a permanent deal'”
How United must be gutted at that news.
Radamel Falcao wants to end his Manchester United misery in the summer – even if Louis van Gaal offers him a permanent deal, report the Manchester Evening News.
How do we know this? Well, the Mirror then adds:
Valencia and Juventus have both been linked with him, while his agent Jorge Mendes claims he will sign for one of the top clubs in Europe, despite his troubles this season. The Colombian striker in understood to have indicated his intention to leave Old Trafford – after being largely being frozen this season.
Well, who better to trust than the player’s agent?
The Daily Star adds another angle:
EXCLUSIVE: Radamel Falcao will reject Man United deal amid Liverpool and Chelsea interest
Number of words from, Liverpool and Chelsea: nil.
Such are the facts.
