Radamel Falcao has revealed his excitement at the possibility of making his Manchester United debut in the Premier League against Queens Park Rangers next Sunday.
The 28-year-old Colombian international striker made the switch to United on transfer deadline day in an initial loan move from French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco until the end of the season with a view to a permanent 55 million euros switch.
Falcao returned from the long-term cruciate knee ligament injury, which ruled him out of the World Cup finals in Brazil, in mid-July and he is now feeling back to his peak condition.
And he is aiming to continue his prolific goal scoring record, which has seen him bag 200 career goals in just over 300 appearances to date, when he pulls on the Red Devils’ shirt.
Falcao, who featured in Colombia’s recent 1-0 friendly defeat against Brazil, is now geared up to feature against Harry Redknapp’s R’s in front of a packed Old Trafford next weekend.
“I am very happy,” he told The Observer. “I hope to give my team the best and help to bring a lot of goals and victories.
“I now leave in a very good condition to join my club and I hope to be available next week.
“I go to Manchester with lots of hopes to try to win a place in the team and then come back to play for Colombia. It’s better to not overthink and let things happen normally instead.”
United are 1.24 to win the game against QPR with the Londoners 11.68 to come out on top and the draw is 5.62.
