Colombian international striker Radamel Falcao will return to parent-club Monaco this summer when his loan spell with Manchester United finishes.

The 29-year-old has struggled to find his best form at Old Trafford and has scored just four goals in 29 appearances in his loan spell.

He joined United on transfer deadline day in 2014 on an initial season-long loan, but with the view to completing a big money permanent transfer at the end of the temporary switch.

However, things have not gone well for the striker at Old Trafford and he will now need to rediscover the form that once made him one of the most deadly strikers in the European game at Porto and Atletico Madrid.

Falcao has struggled to recapture his form since suffering a serious injury in January 2014, which kept him out of Colombia’s World Cup squad and cut-short his debut season with Monaco, who he had joined for a fee in the region of £56million.

Falcao now seems to be in limbo. Noises coming from the principality suggest that the Ligue One outfit may again look to loan him out for another season, which seems strange considering the amount of money they paid to sign him in the first place.

If they do try to sell the striker on a permanent basis then they are likely to have to take massive loss on the striker.

Maybe a season in Ligue One can resurrect the striker’s confidence, because it seems that serious injury has had a major effect on the player.

Where will Falcao be plying his trade next season?
