Radamel Falcao shocks the world by signing with Manchester United from Monaco including the underwriter. The idea of Falcao signing with the Red Devils is a mistake waiting to happen.

Falcao is a dynamic player who should have signed with a team that has the opportunity to participate and win the UEFA Champions League [UCL] or Premier League [EPL]. Manchester United will not participate in the UCL and is in 14th place [from 13th last week] in the EPL Table with two points.

The Red Devils lost one match and drew two with two goals for and three against with a minus one differential. The total in this disaster is two points for Old Trafford and four clubs away from relegation.

The Colombian will have to compete against rivals such as Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie with the possibility of being benched like Javier Hernandez was. The other possibility is a disaster like Fernando Torres after the latter signed with Chelsea which could affect Falcao's career in the future.

Louis Van Gaal may be a great manager but there will be a personality clash between the Dutch manager and Colombian with regards to methods in playing football. While there may be hope that Falcao may succeed at Old Trafford, the situation requires constant monitoring.
