Colombia manager Jose Pekerman insists he will not influence Radamel Falcao's decision over his future, with the striker's Manchester United career hanging in the balance.

Currently on loan from AS Monaco for the season, Falcao has netted just four goals this term with Louis van Gaal expected to make a decision over a permanent deal for the 29-year-old at the end of May.

Falcao has cut a dejected figure this season, having been overlooked at key periods of the campaign due to poor form. The former world footballer of the year nominee has even forced to play for United's Under-21 side.

However, Falcao's return to the international stage has seen an encouraging improvement. After two goals against Bahrain, the ex-Atletico Madrid forward equalled Colombia's all-time scoring record with his third goal in two games against Kuwait.

Van Gaal will be hopeful the goal can trigger an upturn in form during the last two months of United's season, but Pekerman says he will play no role in determining the striker's plans beyond the end of the campaign.

"If Falcao leaves Manchester United it is a personal decision," he said. "I'm not the right person to have a say on this matter. I always want him to be happy. He is an experienced player, intelligent."

Should United wish to make Falcao a permanent addition they must reportedly shell out £42m to acquire the forward, however it is becoming increasingly likely that he will seek pastures new in the summer.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Juventus have all been linked with a move for Falcao, however the player himself has denied any interest in a switch to Serie A and wants to focus on achieving his best form between now and the end of the season.

"Juventus looking for me? They talk a lot, but now I'm focused 100% on Manchester United," he told Radio Caracol as reported by The Independent. "Before the end of the season there are some crucial matches and I hope that this situation will change."
