Manchester United to renegotiate with AS Monaco

The Red Devils have seen enough of Radamel Falcao to know that they are in a good position to force the Ligue 1 side into lowering their asking fee for the Colombian striker

When he signed for Louis van Gaal’s side on a season long loan last summer, reports claimed that Falcao had to score 10 goals in 15 games in order to allow the Red Devils to sign the player on a permanent basis for 43 million pounds.

During the 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday, Falcao missed quite a few opportunities but van Gaal is still interested in keeping him beyond the current season.

However, Untied are now looking to convince AS Monaco into lowering their asking price for the striker since the player’s form does not justify the transfer fee the Ligue 1 giants are asking. The board believes the fee to be way too much and has already started discussing the possibility of a renegotiation with the Monegasque club.
