Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher claims Radamel Falcao will not be at Manchester United next season.

The Colombian international is on a season-long loan from AS Monaco and has so far failed to fire. He has netted four times and managed three assists from 15 league appearances for the Red Devils this term.

Daley Blind helped United avoid a defeat against West Ham United as the Dutch international's late strike helped the Old Trafford club settle for a 1-1 draw at Upton Park.

Louis van Gaal started Falcao alongside Robin van Persie to lead his side's attack. Carragher believes the partnership between the South American and the former Arsenal striker is not ticking for United.

"I think Louis van Gaal has got a problem with his strike force. I don't see Falcao staying at the end of the season and it's something Manchester United will have to address in the striking department," Carragher told Sky Sports.

"West Ham showed pace and energy through Sakho and Valencia in the first half to get in behind the United defence. But Falcao and Van Persie failed to exploit the same spaces.

"They were just jogging up field, especially Van Persie, ambling up and they didn't cause a make-shift West Ham back four enough problems.

"When United were in the wide areas, Falcao was ball-watching and that made him easy to mark. He should have been running down the channels."

"There is not enough movement from the front two, there's no sprint, spark or energy and that was in complete contrast to West Ham," he added.

The former Liverpool defender stressed that introducing young striker James Wilson or playing Wayne Rooney up front – who is active in the midfield – would have helped United to clinch three points against the Hammers.

"United have got big problems at that end of the pitch. Everybody talks about United needing a centre back and that defensively they're all over the place, but they've got one of the best defensive records in the league," the Anfield favourite said.

"Granted, a lot of that is down to the goalkeeper, but the problems are at the other end of the pitch and there's no way I see Falcao staying."

"The position of Rooney is not right. He only touched the ball in the opposition's box once or twice and he's playing like a defensive midfield player," Carragher concluded.
