It's been a massive summer outlay for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal.

His squad now almost leaves him no room for error or excuse. With such an array of talent he must surely have to deliver a top-four finish. Surely?

Man Utd

BBC Sport's Simon Stone: "Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao have all made reference to United being "the biggest club in the world." After a record summer outlay of almost £150m, now they have to prove it."


Man Utd

Here's some more info on the news that Manchester United have signed Colombia striker Radamel Falcao.

They have signed him on a £6m season-long loan deal from Monaco.

Falcao had been linked during the summer with a move away from the French Ligue 1 side, whom he joined for £50m in May 2013.

The 28-year-old scored 11 goals in 20 league appearances for Monaco, and two in three games this season.

Ben: Ridiculous, two months to sign players, deadline shuts at 11pm, a two-hour extension to 1AM, yet the deal has been completed 30 minutes after the extension.

Chris, London: Surely £300,000+ per week is enough to buy a watch? It'll definitely buy goals though.

Aidan Williams: Make or break season now more than ever. Last time they can sign this kind of calibur without significant league improvement

Dave Scott: Falcao is no way an expensive luxury! He would be an asset to any team he's apart of!

Darren Bateman: No Heskey?

Manager reaction


Man Utd

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal; "When a player of Radamel Falcao's calibre becomes available it's an opportunity not to be missed."


Man Utd


So Manchester United finally secure the signing of Radamel Falcao from Monaco. A cracking move? An expensive luxury? A player they didn't need?

Lee Marlowe: Surely a deadline is a deadline... at this rate they may as well lift the transfer window

Lee: The suspense is killing me... I've almost fallen asleep three times waiting for this Falcao deal but it's still the most awake I've felt all day.

Richard in Telford: Think Welbeck should have gone for 20m on potential alone and slightly concerned Van Gaal is so willing to cast of our young English players

Man Utd

Michael Keane is not the only Manchester United player to leave the club tonight - and he won't be the last. Two more exits set to be confirmed soon....

Louis van Gaal has had a total clearout of the youth team/reserves at Old Trafford hasn't he? Michael Keane is on his way. The 21-year-old was never going to break through at United and is off to the Clarets.


Burnley have signed Manchester United defender Michael Keane on loan.
