Speculation has increased that Falcao may not sign permanently with Manchester United at the end of the current season, and new reports suggest the striker's relationship with manager Louis van Gaal is rocky, reports the Daily Mail.

Falcao's agent has said that the player needs to be playing more if Manchester United expect to keep him beyond his current loan period. Faustino Asprilla claimed the player's relationship with Van Gaal is not a good one after being left out of United's squad to face Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao was not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's match against Southampton, and manager Louis van Gaal confirmed that the on-loan striker is not injured, ESPN FC reports.

Manchester United have been playing quite well lately with Falcao in the starting XI, and they failed to register even a single shot on target against the Saints. Falcao will look to get back in the mix Saturday against QPR at Loftus Road.

Manchester United will decide whether or not to purchase Falcao permanently in April, according to the Daily Mail.

The striker is on loan from Monaco with the option for United to make the move permanent in April. The striker only recently became fit enough to start matches for the team, and has picked up three goals so far this season.

Falcao scored his third goal of the season during Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Stoke City on Thursday.

Falcao is starting to come into form finally for the Red Devils, scoring two goals and assisting on another in the last four games. If he is rested for United's FA Cup match against Yeovil Town on Sunday, he'll have a decent rest before their next Premier League match, which comes Jan. 11 against Southampton at Old Trafford.

Falcao assisted on one of Wayne Rooney's two goals during Manchester United's 3-1 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day.

Falcao now has two goals and three assists in 10 Premier League appearances this season, and he seems to have found himself a spot in the starting XI, which certainly increases his scoring possibilities. Up next is a Sunday trip to White Hart Lane to face off against Tottenham.

Falcao started and scored in the 53rd minute of Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Falcao's goal was just his second this season and his first in Premier League play since he opened his Man U account back on Oct. 5 against Everton. He's fully fit now and could be depended-highly on during the condensed scheduled in order to give Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie a break. Up next is a Boxing Day match against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Manager Louis van Gaal said that Falcao will not start Monday against Southampton due to a lack of match fitness, The Guardian reports.

Falcao has been a major disappointment since joining United on Sept. 1 and he'll have to have a significant turnaround if he's going to stay at the club beyond this season. With that seemingly unlikely, it's a wonder if United will try to get out of his loan deal in January, possibly sending him back to Monaco, who could then send him elsewhere.

Falcao came on in the 78th minute for James Wilson in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Stoke City on Tuesday.

Despite Wayne Rooney sidelined with a knee injury, Falcao still couldn't get in the starting XI, ceding that spot to Wilson, who he eventually replaced. The loan spell at United is bordering on disaster, and it looks like Falcao may be best fit finding a new team for next season.
