Just four goals all season for one of the deadliest strikers in the World, the Manchester United chapter in Radamel Falcao’s book will not be present with too many great things. Unfortunately for the Colombian, he just could not get going in the Premier League for Louis Van Gaal’s side and couldn’t seal a permanent move to United after being sent on loan by Monaco.
As Falcao now returns to Monaco and prepares for the Copa America, Manchester United will no doubt be planning to buy a replacement for the striker. Sure, Falcao didn’t really do a lot during his time at Old Trafford but with Robin Van Persie also misfiring this season, the onus is on Manchester United to sign a striker and fast. They didn’t have the firepower and will not be looking forward to another season where they are not sure of who will score those goals for them.
Manchester United have always had great strikers at the club and next season should be no different. With Wayne Rooney leading the line, we look at 3 options for the Red Devils as they prepare to challenge for the title next season.
1. Edinson Cavani
The rumours linking Cavani with a move away from PSG just do not stop, he might have won another French League title but Cavani would be hoping to prove his talents in a tougher league. Cavani was touted to leave Paris in the January transfer window but ultimately stayed at the club. He is one of the best strikers in the World and a partnership of Rooney and Cavani would be devastating in any league. The only issue we see from this deal is the ludicrous amount that United would have to pay to get him but they do have Angel Di Maria who is wanted by PSG, it could be a deal in the making.
