Agent Opens Talks With Liverpool Over Striker Deal After Man Utd Opt Against Move

By on April 20, 2015

As the opening of the summer transfer window approaches, managers are working hard identifying targets and lining-up potential deals so we’ll bring you all the news and gossip. Today, Liverpool are in talks with Radamel Falcao’s agent…..

Colombia Radamel Falcao

Radamel Falcao’s agent has opened formal talks with Liverpool about a potential deal after Manchester United decided against signing him on a permanent basis, according to reports.

Falcao is currently on a season-long loan at Old Trafford from Monaco but has struggled to make an impact with the Colombian international managing just 4 goals in 23 appearances so far.

The Red Devils have the option to make the 29-year-old’s move permanent at the end of the season but the Express claim that Louis van Gaal has already informed Monaco that they won’t be exercising that option so he’ll be heading back to the Ligue 1 outfit this summer.

With Monaco keen to get his sky-high wages off their books, the newspaper suggests that Falcao’s agent Jorge Mendes has already began looking for a new club for next season and he’s supposedly opened formal talks with Liverpool about a potential deal.

The Merseysiders lost Luis Suarez last summer and with Daniel Sturridge struggling with injury this season, the likes of Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert have struggled to fill the Uruguayan’s boots up front.

Therefore, Brendan Rodgers is expected to be in the market for a top class striker this summer and it appears he could be considering a surprise move for Falcao, but I’m not sure how well it would go down at Anfield if he decides to do a deal.

The Colombian’s loan at United has been a disaster but he arrived at Old Trafford with a reputation as one of the world’s deadliest strikers and a career record of 204 goals in 325 appearances is nothing to be sniffed at.

If Rodgers could get him back to full fitness and confident in front of goal again, then he’d have a potent goal-scorer in his ranks. The question is, can he afford to take such an expensive risk given how much pressure he’s already under after their FA Cup exit and probable failure to secure a top four finish?

I’d personally be hugely surprised if Liverpool did end up opting to sign Falcao but stranger things have happened, so we’ll just have to wait and see how this develops…
