Red Devils stalling on potential signing.
Manchester United want to put a deal to sign Radamel Falcao on a permanent basis on hold for the next couple of months as the Colombian striker needs to prove his fitness, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 28-year-old moved to Old Trafford from AS Monaco on a season-long loan deal this term, but has disappointed so far with just one goal for the Red Devils.
Injuries have disrupted Falcao’s progress in the Premier League, and it may be that the player’s fitness will prove a stumbling block as the club ponder whether or not to pay the big money to sign him permanently.
The Colombian international would cost around £43m, but could still attract interest from the likes of Chelsea, who were linked with the player before his move to United.
