Manchester United are unlikely to make Radamel Falcao a permanent member of the squad after his loan deal expires after the end of the season, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Red Devils are not impressed with the performance of the Colombian, who has scored only four goals thus far and could not make it out of the bench against Arsenal in spite of the Red Devils trailing by a goal in the quarter final of the FA Cup.

The striker has since then been relegated to playing for the United reserves where he has drawn a blank before being hauled off in the 71st minute.

The Monaco striker has a £44m release clause in his contract which the Red Devils have refused to meet. They are instead looking to spend the money on two other strikers in what is expected to be yet another £150m windfall in the summer.

Paulo Dybala and Saido Berahino are on the radar of Louis van Gaal, who is expected to keep his job whether or not United finishes in the Champions League. Dybala has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, who can use him as a replacement for the out of favour Theo Walcott, who can't get a game for the Gunners after coming back from injury.

Berahino will also face a lot of competition from Tottenham, who have also earmarked the player as cover for the misfiring Roberto Soldado.

Strikers are on top of the Dutchman's agenda for the summer, especially with Robin van Persie also struggling to keep fit and failing to hit the same form he did on his first season with the Red Devils.

Van Gaal is likely to strengthen in midfield with Michael Carrick entering his mid thirties and the likes of Ander Herrera and Daley Blind not commanding the same respect from the manager, as was evident in their game against Arsenal, when the Spaniard was hauled off at half time.

A centre-back is also on top of United's wish list, with the current crop well below the standard a club challenging for the title should have.
