Whilst there may be some scepticism about Manchester United’s reported £50m move for Atletico Madrid’s Columbian hit-man Radamel Falcao, Guillem Balague believes there is substance to the story.

Falcao had been strongly linked with a move to either Chelsea or Man City but now Guillem Balague has confirmed that United’s interest in the striker is real.

Quite how he knows this I’m not sure, but Balague going on record to claim the deal isn’t just speculation does lend credence to the story.
