Radamel Falcao has targeted making his Manchester United debut upon the resumption of the Premier League against Queens Park Rangers on 14 September.
The Colombian made his first international appearance for 10 months in a 13-minute cameo in the 1-0 defeat to Brazil in Miami.
And the 28 year old, who only featured twice for Monaco before completing his deadline day loan move to United, has quashed over fears over his current fitness following his return from cruciate knee ligament damage by targeting making his first appearance for his new side next week.
"I now leave in a very good condition to join my club and I hope to be available next week," he told The Observer.
"I go to Manchester with lots of hopes to try to win a place in the team and then come back to play for Colombia. It's better to not overthink and let things happen normally instead."
After being linked with moves to Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid in the closing week of the transfer window as Monaco attempted to offload their prized asset, Falcao eventually secured a move to Old Trafford.
Falcao will compete for a starting place alongside Robin van Persie and captain Wayne Rooney as manager Louis van Gaal considers how to accommodate all of his star players in his first team.
Once regarded as one of the finest forwards in world football, a serious knee injury suffered last January had derailed his career but Falcao is now aiming to reignite his career at United.
"For me it is amazing, I am very happy," he added. "I hope to give my team the best and help to bring a lot of goals and victories.
"I think I have lived this week very intensely. It hasn't been the most comfortable week to work in, with all of the changes, but I have lived it like a kid.
I have had the same feeling as when I debuted for the national team. It was very exciting and special and I enjoyed being back."
