Monaco have revealed they have held talks recently with Manchester United over a permanent deal to sign striker Radamel Falcao - but the Red Devils have yet to make a decision on the misfiring Colombian.

United have the option to turn Falcao's one-year loan deal into a £43.2m permanent transfer in the summer.

The Colombian striker has scored four goals in 27 appearances this season and has been widely tipped to leave Old Trafford.

But Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev says United have told the French club they haven't yet made a decision about whether or not to keep the 29-year-old.

Vasilyev said: "I met the Manchester officials last Sunday. They have not decided if they would exercise the option.

"It has not been his best season, but they will decide at the season.

"The decision lies with Manchester and then we will discuss with the player to know what he wants."


United boss Louis van Gaal is also keen to send winger Adnan Januzaj on loan to PSV Eindhoven to secure 21-year-old Memphis Depay this summer.

United face stiff competition from Lancashire rivals Liverpool, with the player's agent saying a move to Anfield would be "great" for the striker.

However, Van Gaal remains the frontrunner for the Dutchman's signature having managed him at international level.
