Manchester United should secure Radamel Falcao's deal says Robbie Savage.

The Red Devils signed former Atletico Madrid striker on a season-long loan from Monaco last summer with an option to sign him permanently

However, reports has it that Van Gaal isn't a fan of the striker and he may not be securing Falcao’s services permanently.

With the stories about the Colombian striker making the rounds, former Blackburn midfielder Savage believes it’s best United keep the 28-year-old but leaving Falcao out for the clash against Southampton at Old Trafford last weekend was a signal that he won’t be signed permanently by United.

"He is expensive - his wages are £265,000 a week and turning his loan into a permanent move would cost United £43.5m in the summer" Savage told BBC Sport.

"His injury record and fitness is a concern but I would still keep him because, if he has got over the serious knee injury he suffered in January last year, he is undoubtedly a world-class striker.

"I don't think United will sign him though - the writing was on the wall when he was left out of the squad for Sunday's defeat by Southampton, which I thought was the wrong decision.

"He needs to play regularly - if he does that he will produce. If he doesn't play week in, week out, there is no point signing him permanently."
