Radamel Falcao is feeling ‘spectacular’ and is ‘very excited’ by the prospect of playing for Manchester United following his deadline day move from Monaco.

The Colombian striker has joined United on a season-long loan after recovering from the knee injury which ruled him out of the World Cup.

He featured as a late substitute in Colombia’s friendly with Brazil and was happy to pull on the national team shirt again in Miami.

Falcao is now hoping to make his United debut against Queens Park Rangers next weekend and he is relishing the prospect of turning out for the Premier League club.

"Because of the injury I felt so nervous, almost like it was my first time with the national team," Falcao is quoted by several newspapers as saying following his brief run-out against Brazil. "And I expect it will be the same before I play my first game for Manchester United.

"I’m so happy to be back, and I am also happy about being able to join United.

"Physically, I feel spectacular. I have been able to play without any kind of trouble.

"I am very excited about playing for Manchester United and I hope to score a lot of goals for them. That is something I have done everywhere I have played.

"It is a dream come true to play for such a great and famous club. To bring the good times back is what we all want, and I will work extra hard to do that.

"I made the right choice to join Manchester United. United was always in my best interests.

"I have been trying for months to get it all sorted out and I was so happy that United came to an agreement with Monaco. 

"United are one of the three best clubs in the world. They have made me feel very important in this new project."
