The striker will make the switch from Monaco.
Radamel Falcao will make his move from AS Monaco to Manchester United permanent in the next few days when the Red Devils pay £44m to sign him from the Stade Louis II, reports CaughtOffside.
The Colombia international joined United on transfer deadline day in August and although has failed to truly establish himself at Old Trafford since, has convinced Louis van Gaal enough to sign him permanently.
The 13-time Premier League champions have already paid £6m to Monaco as a loan fee and will now fork out a further £44m to confirm the deal for Falcao.
Van Gaal has given the go-ahead for the move and now executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will be left to tie things up with the Ligue 1 side.
The one issue the club had had with Falcao was about an injury to his left knee that caused him to miss almost 12 months of football, but clearly the 28-year-old has done enough to allay those fears.
