Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is reportedly set to meet with executive-chairman Ed Woodward to discuss the future of Radamel Falcao and plans for the summer transfer window.

The Colombian, who joined United on a season long loan with an option of making it permanent for a fee of around £43m from French club AS Monaco, has failed to impress the manager and could find himself returning to Ligue 1 at the end of the season.

According to Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils manager and Woodward are set to make a definitive decision on the striker's future.

The report claims that the Dutch manager has made up his mind regarding the former Atletico Madrid star's future and it is believe that he will instruct the club not to make the move permanent as he does not feature in the manager's long-term plans.

Apart from the seven minute cameo in the game against Tottenham last Sunday, the 29-year-old forward has failed to make an appearance in the United first-team since February. The manager has opted to use Wayne Rooney as a lone striker in the absence of Robin van Persie, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury for the last three weeks.

The Colombian international has struggled to replicate the form that he showed during his previous stints at Atletico and Porto, that made him the feared striker he is today. His return of four goals in 21 appearances for Old Trafford has failed to impress the hierarchy, who are ready to let him go.

Apart from Falcao the manager will also discuss his summer transfer plans with Woodward. United are expected to spend heavily again this summer, with priorities being in defence, a right-back, a central defender and a midfielder.
