According to AS Monaco, Radamel Falcao could still stay at Manchester United beyond the summer.
The Colombian international striker has been on a season-long loan with the Red Devils which had a view to a permanent deal but his form under Louis van Gaal has not warranted a big-money purchase.
It has been widely reported that Falcao would be out the Old Trafford exit door this summer with a number of clubs including Juventus and Liverpool showing interest but Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has indicated that perhaps the former Atletico Madrid star may remain at United.
“I saw Manchester United leaders last Sunday and they have not yet decided if they will exercise the option [to sign Falcao permanently],” Vasilyev told French daily newspaper Nice-Matin.
“It’s not his best season but they retain the opportunity to talk at the end of the season. We are not in any further negotiations for the moment, even if big clubs are interested.
“The decision is in Manchester, then we will talk with the player to find out what he wants.”
