Ronaldo: Falcao Fantastic Buy For United

Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, insists Radamel Falcao is a ‘fantastic’ signing for his former club, Manchester United.

Ronaldo believes that Falcao is a top player who will improve Louis van Gaal's squad and help United back to old glory.

"He is very good player. I think Manchester did very well," Ronaldo said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"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.”

Falcao was linked to Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal but decided to join Old Trafford on Deadline Day. Ronaldo, who won nine trophies at Old Trafford, believes the Colombian striker will help United to forget about their dismal Premier League start.

"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,” he added.

Falcao has scored 155 goals in 199 appearances for FC Porto, Atletico Madrid and AS Monaco since 2009 and joined Manchester United on a season-long loan with a purchase option.
