The Colombian striker had been heavily linked to the club from the Spanish capital over the summer, but has attempted to silence rumours that he only went to Old Trafford after a move to Madrid collapsed by suggesting a transfer to England had always been his preference.
“Manchester United had been pursuing me for the past few months,” Falcao.
“Yes, other clubs like Real Madrid were interested, but I wanted to go to Manchester. It is a great club, with a great history and one that fills me with a lot of hope that I can succeed there.
“I always dreamed to be in a club like Manchester United.”
The 28-year-old spelled out his desire to stay for the long haul by saying: “It’s a new process, new team. This year come some players, and I think Manchester United build a big team this season, and then future seasons. And I would like to be here and be part of the project.
“I want to stay here for many years.”
