Radamel Falcao’s stay at Manchester United has reached a new low after he was named in the starting line-up for the Under-21s against Spurs tonight.

The Colombian has only hit four goals for the Red Devils since making a high profile loan switch from AS Monaco on transfer deadline day last August.

He was on the bench for the FA Cup game against Arsenal on Monday night but Louis van Gaal declined to use him and this latest development is all the more damning.

Although van Gaal has praised Falcao in public – going as far as to gush about his level of English at his first press conference – his use of the player on the pitch strikes a different chord.

It is suspected that Falcao is the most highly-paid player to ever appear for a second-string team in English football as he is reported to be on £350,000-a-week.

Now it is looking certain that Falcao will end his spell at Old Trafford after the current season.
