Fergie eyeing Colombia's finest?

Reports in Spain are claiming that United and Real Madrid could be locked in a battle to sign River Plate's brilliant young striker Radamel Falcao Garcia, 22. According to the player's agent, Nestor Sivori, the Champions of Europe and Real want to sign the player: "He is being followed by both clubs".

AC Milan are believed to have had a 15 million Euro bid turned down recently, a number of other clubs have been linked including Aston Villa.

Falcao Garcia scored 11 goals for River Plate last season from 27 appearanaces, but at only 5ft 9" United fans will wonder if the Colombian can bring anything new to the squad given that he will be another diddyman striker along with Rooney and Tevez.

Dimitar Berbatov remains the firm favourite to arrive at Old Traffford this summer, but Spurs are reportedly holding out for £30m, which if met will see the North London club trousering a cool £20m profit.

Fergie has also made it clear it's likely that there will be only one big signing this summer. We are left to assume that does not include the permanent transfer of Carlos Tevez, a deal that is expected to be concluded in the next few days.


  1. 30 million pounds for Berbatov seems a bit much, this is the cost possibly of not being discreet enough in pursuing transfer targets. Who knows, this Colombian player might be able to be an effective target-man.

    For if Ferguson and United's scouting staff see something in this player worth the United shirt, there must be something great about him. He should definitely not be another Kleberson, or Djemba-Djemba.

  2. Uday, but will the Falcao bring anything new to our attack? I think not personally.

    He's too small. We need someone who will bring something different to the mix.

    But yes, whoever it is, we dont want another duffer.

  3. I think this dude has the flair to bring to manchester united attack so sign him up.

  4. To bring anything new to the attack, will Falcao be played in the regular starting lineup? No I guess.

  5. I personally havent seen much of Falcao however I would much have a player of proven Premiership ability and offers something different i.e. Berbatov

  6. he is small, but seems quite good in the air.
    will be a good bargain if we can get him fir less than 10M
