Manchester United announced Sunday that Falcao has returned to Monaco, as the club decided not to purchase him following his season-long loan.

Falcao was a colossal disappointment with United, though he rarely looked fully fit after tearing his ACL last January. There will be no shortage of suitors for him this summer, though he may have to take a pay cut to make a move happen.

Falcao is not in the 18-man squad for Sunday's season finale against Hull City.

Woodward reportedly told Monaco that United would wait to make a decision whether or not to make the player's loan permanent until the end of the season. Falcao has scored four times for United since joining the club.
