    I'm surprised Chelsea want him to be honest after watching him play for us.

    I didn't think of that. I think you're right. These agents are shrewd little bastards, it's crazy how much influence they can have.

    My thoughts exactly. Given how poor hes been in the league i just cant see another PL team pick him up. My money's on him staying at Monaco

    Worth a gamble if his fee/wages arent too obscene. The guys was unbelievable before the injury, and he's had a year to get used to the PL now. One year loan with option to buy wouldnt be terrible.

    That's what I'd prefer too, but Benteke would cost £30m and wouldn't even start.

    I dont think we will see the old lethal Falcao but I can see him doing better at Chelsea due to the players they have.

    That's one game where he didn't in amongst many, many where he missed chances he'd have put away in his sleep when he was younger.

    Hell in his very first game he was put through and I immediately thought 'goal' and he sliced in wide in comical fashion. He did that so often.

    Very true. People point to the City game and say "only he could have scored that goal" but he missed some sitters for us during his time with us. Even the likes of RvN started to lose their finishing powers towards the end of their career.

    Knowing Chelsea and our luck, they'll get Falcao and he'll score like 50 goals for them next season.

    I find it weird again that he actually played for us. Michael Owen played for Manchester United. Bizarre.

    There might be something to this. Denis Law, in his last season at United, really went off the boil. He was injured a lot (as was Owen) which may have contributed, but he just didn't look sharp and he'd lost that half-yard of pace. He underwent a renaissance at City for a while but it was short lived.

    Even if he goes to Chelsea and scores 12 goals, our decision to not make his loan deal permanent would still be justified.

    He'd be a great addition to Chelsea. Mourinho obviously knows all about him from his Madrid days and he would be able to swap out with Costa since both are likely to intermittently miss games to injury.

    Has he played CL football yet? It seems he always joins a team not in CL, once they qualify he goes to another team, and so forth...

    Is it just me or was Falcao fit for the whole season?

    He played CL for Porto in 09/10, and mostly Europa League elsewhere.

    He played for Porto in the competition in 2009/10, he scored against Arsenal in the last 16 tie.

    Personally i think finishing, like other attributes in professional sport, is down to your fitness. As you age your body changes through injuries and it affects your balance, strikers tend to rely more on their composure than other positions so it stands to reason as you get older, like pace, its a attribute that can start to diminish. Just a thought.

    He is officially no longer a United player

    he wouldnt be a starter for Chelsea would he. The odd cup game and and sub appearances i'd say.

    Would not bother me if Chelsea signed him, he is well beyond his peak.

    The entertainment forum, given his laughable attempts to stay on his feet. I dare say his video compilation wouldn't look out of place on America's funniest home videos. He might even win the damn thing.

    I would be very happy if Chelsea stumped up the reported 25mill and his 250k a week wages, I just can't see him returning to anywhere near his best, he'd also be sitting on Chelsea's bench for 90% of the time considering Mourinho's clear no.1 is Costa and he doesn't like to rotate... at all, just can't see it working for well for them.

    To be fair we're probably the only ones discussing him anyway.

    Wouldn't say so. Considering his wages and return, wasn't worth it. Probably would have been better to keep Hernandez or give more playing time to Wilson personally.

    I read today that Monaco have to sell him this season and any loan deal will likely be rejected but if they honestly think they could get £25m for him they are in for a surprise.

    Probably the worst striker I have ever seen play for United. Genuinely. He got such an easy ride because of his previous reputation, its untrue.

    Couldn't shoot, couldn't score, couldn't run, couldn't dribble, couldn't control the ball, couldn't hold the ball up, couldn't run without falling over, couldn't pass more then 10 yards...he could barely even strike a ball cleanly. And I really could go on.

    If he gets back to his best, it will be a Lazarus like comeback.

    Costa is a bit of a sicknote so Falcao would be a good insurance policy for Joe-Say.

    Chelsea move is tied to Cechs transfer to us. We were committed to a £25m payment as part of the loan deal. We will buy Cech for £25m and Chelsea will buy Falcao for £25m. We're basically donating Falcao to Chelsea and getting cech in return.

    We'll never pay £25m for a 33 year old keeper

    It's the £25m we'd already committed to paying for Falcao so we're basically getting Cech free and Chelsea are getting Falcao in return.

    Are you saying we agreed to pay £25m last season and backed out? Because i really doubt that is how loan deals work. If he doesnt sign for Chelsea and goes to say Valencia, we have to pay them £25m to take him? For example, Nanis over in Portugal and i dont think we are holding Sporting to pay a fee for him. And him and Falcao have the same agent

    When we signed Falcao i remember people saying we paid £6m for the loan + his wages. IF we took the option to sign him we would pay £40m at the end of the term. I've never heard anything about already agreeing something for this summer
