Falcao: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 5, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Falcao scored in the 62nd minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday, his first goal since joining the club on loan from AS Monaco this summer.

Falcao has assisted on goals in both of United's last two matches, but he finally opened his account with a solid redirection off a pass from Angel di Maria that looked awfully like a shot on goal. While he is a very important player for United, he will continue to shoulder plenty of the attacking load with Wayne Rooney out for another two games thanks to his red-card ban.

Manchester United and Falcao have agreed to personal terms ahead of a permanent transfer to the club next summer, reports the Daily Mail.

Falcao was signed on loan from Monaco on the final day of the transfer window. The team has also agreed to the transfer fee owed Monaco if they decide to make the strikers move permanent next summer, and the last piece to be put in place were the player's personal terms.

Falcao assisted on a Robin van Persie goal for the second consecutive game after setting him up in the 22nd minute of Manchester United's 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday.

While Falcao was brought to United for his scoring exploits, he has yet to grab his first goal for the club. Nevertheless, he's got an assist in back-to-back matches and he'll look to keep it going next Sunday against Everton.

Falcao assisted on Robin van Persie's 13th minute goal during Manchester United's shocking 5-3 loss to Leicester City on Sunday.

Falcao also hit the woodwork later in the game, keeping him from his first United goal. He started up front with RVP and Wayne Rooney, and while they allowed five goals, there's no reason for Falcao to move back to the bench.

Falcao is in the starting XI for Manchester United's Premier League match at Leicester City on Sunday.

Falcao, who was used as a substitute last week against QPR, will start up front with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, with Juan Mata moving to the bench. Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that he is confident Falcao will be able to play with RVP and fantasy owners will get their first look Sunday in a very favorable matchup.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that he believes Falcao and Robin van Persie could play together despite the two forwards playing the same position. "I don't think that Falcao interferes with van Persie or that he interferes with Falcao. Falcao is a very good striker, I already said that when he came here in his first press conference."

It's an embarrassment of riches for Manchester United, which puts fantasy owners at a bit of a disadvantage because in all likelihood Falcao and RVP will eat into each other's minutes more than the two of them playing together. Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney could be moved back a bit, given that he also tries to play more forward.

Falcao subbed on for Juan Mata in the 67th minute of Manchester United's 4-0 rout of QPR on Sunday and he took one shot, which was on-goal.

It was a bit of a surprise that Falcao came off the bench, although it's expected that he will be inserted into the starting XI soon enough, with Juan Mata potentially moving to the bench to make way for Wayne Rooney in midfield.
