Radamel Falcao thanks Juan Mata on Twitter

Manchester United new arrival Radamel Falcao has thanked his teammate Juan Mata for his welcome to the club.

The 28-year-old, who joined the Red Devils on loan on the transfer deadline day, reached out to Mata on Twitter to personally thank him for a warm welcome.

Writing on his official Twitter account, Falcao said:

Mata, 26, had earlier welcomed the Colombian striker to Old Trafford on his personal blog, One Hour Behind.

“Almost at the end of the transfer window we had a new signing,” the Spaniard wrote.

“Not just a player, but a fantastic striker whose ability to score is extraordinary: Radamel Falcao.

“I am sure he will give a lot to our group, as a person and with his goals, and here I welcome him and I wish him the best for this season.”

Falcao could make his Old Trafford debut against QPR at this weekend.
