Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘Falcao is a fantastic signing for Man United’

The former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed that Colombian striker Radamel Falcao’s loan move to Old Trafford will prove to be a “fantastic” signing for the Red Devils.

The 28-year-old South American has completed a season-long loan switch to Manchester United with an option to make the deal permanent.

“He is very good player,”  The Daily Mail quotes the Real Madrid striker as saying. “I think Manchester did very well. I don’t think he is the wrong type of player. He is a top player so I don’t think it is a wrong buy.

“I think he will be a fantastic buy. Manchester have not started well, two points, so they need quality players and Falcao is a quality player.”

Falcao looks set to join the likes of Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Angel Di Maria, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind at Old Trafford this season.
