Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao says "calls are coming in everyday" as he looks for a club where he can play regularly.

The Colombian 29-year-old has scored four goals in 22 appearances since joining on loan from Monaco.

But he has not started a game since a 2-0 win over Sunderland on 28 February.

"I need to find a place where I have continuity and I can play," Falcao told Colombian television station Win Sports.external-link

"When the season finishes, I will obviously sit down and analyse things and decide what is best for me."

The former Porto and Atletico Madrid striker added: "Calls are coming in every day so I need to stay calm. I stay out of it and let other people handle this situation."

Falcao was one of the most sought-after strikers last summer after scoring 155 goals since moving to Europe in 2009.

United beat a number of top clubs to his signature as they signed him on loan, paying him £265,000 a week.

His loan expires at the end of the season, after which United must decide whether to take up a £43.5m option to buy him.

Falcao says he has a good relationship with United manager Louis van Gaal and hopes to make an impact in the remaining eight games of the season.

He added: "I am playing for Manchester United at the moment. I am completely focused on the club. I have faith and hope that lots of things can happen in the remaining games this season.

"Van Gaal has to make decisions like any other manager, regardless of whether it's favourable for me or not.

"Every coach has a different way of managing a group. It's a cultural thing, different ways of thinking, different philosophies - it's normal. I get on naturally with him."
