It would be safe to say that Radamel Falcao’s loan spell at Manchester United was a complete waste with United paying £6 million for the one year loan, and Falcao earned £265,000 per week. In return, the Colombian provided a return of just four goals in 29 appearances for the club that season.
Two years later, “El Tigre” is back to his best. Scoring 24 goals in 29 games across all competitions for AS Monaco, once again he is one of the leading goalscorers in Europe.
The Red Devils certainly don’t remember his time at the club very fondly because of obvious reasons, and even the player himself must have nightmarish memories of that year. He went through one of the worst forms of his career and was even demoted to the U-21 team.
But it looks like Falcao does not harbour any hard feelings towards the club or the fans as evident from the fact that he was seen signing a Man Utd shirt after landing in Manchester prior to the Champions League outing. Or it may be that he just wants to frustrate the Citizens by favouring their cross-town rivals.
