Radamel Falcao could be at Old Trafford next season, according to Monaco’s vice-president Vadim Vasilyev, who has claimed Manchester United have not ruled out signing the striker.
The Colombian has failed to impress since joining from Monaco on loan, scoring only four goals over a mere 13 Premier League starts, and has been linked with a move away from United in the summer, as the club looks unlikely to meet Falcao’s £43.5m price-tag at the end of the season.
Manchester United have made an official approach for PSV Eindhoven’s winger Memphis Depay, the Dutch club confirmed on Monday.
The newly-crowned Eredivisie champions said that United had opened negotiations with PSV over the signing of the 21-year-old Dutch international, who has also attracted interest from Liverpool and Paris Saint Germanin.
Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao has admitted it would be an honour to play for Manchester United if the club came calling in the summer.

Paris St Germain defender Marquinhos has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Manchester United in the summer. It is well-known that United need reinforcements in defence.
The signings of Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind have only added temporary reinforcement to the inexperienced line. United have been looking at a number of top defenders. They are thought to hold a long-standing interest in Borussia Dortmund centre back Mats Hummels. The poor form of the 26-year-old appears to have made United look at other alternatives. United are back to winning ways in the top four race after a 2-0 win over Sunderland.

Manchester United have opened talks with David De Gea over a new contract, according to Jorge Mendes, the goalkeeper’s agent.
The 24-year-old, who has less than 18 months left on his contract, has been in outstanding form this season and has repeatedly been linked with a move to Real Madrid, as the Spanish giants look to replace Iker Casillas.
David De Gea will remain at Manchester United for the foreseeable future, according to his agent Jorge Mendes.
The 24-year-old has only 18 months on his contract and has attracted interest from Real Madrid, with reports suggesting the European champions would be happy to wait for De Gea to see his contract out at Old Trafford before returning to Spain on a free transfer.
Darren Fletcher has been given permission to talk to West Ham United ahead of a possible January move, Louis Van Gaal confirmed at Friday’s press conference.

Manchester United will make a last-minute attempt to sign Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels or Athletic Bilbao Aymeric Laporte this month.
With the transfer window closing on Monday, United are running out of time to bolster their defensive options and while they’ve not seemed in a rush to get their hands on a new signing, reports suggest things might be about on change over the next four days, according to reports from ESPN.
