Manchester United have reportedly agreed terms with Monaco regarding a permanent move for striker Radamel Falcao.

The Premier League giants secured the services of the Colombian international star on transfer deadline day after agreeing a loan deal with the Ligue 1 side, with the option to make the move permanent next summer.

Reports said then that United agreed to pay £6m for the one-season loan and secured an option to pay an extra £44m should they decide to take the striker on permanently at the end of the season.

After spending more than £150m in overhauling the squad with Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind, it was said United opted for a loan deal rather than a permanent move due to Financial Fair Play rules but also because of fears over his fitness. The striker tore his left anterior cruciate ligament earlier last season and missed the World Cup.

But even though Falcao has only scored one goal for United in five Premier League appearances, Goal now reports "everything is agreed" for the striker to complete a £44m permanent move to Old Trafford at the end of the season.

The report claims that United and Monaco have already signed the paperwork to close the deal while Falcao has agreed personal terms with the Old Trafford club, with the Colombian set to receive the same £240,000 per week that is currently earning.

Falcao recently stated his intention to stay at United for the next season, once his loan deal expires.

"Me and my family are happy here, and we would like to stay for many years at Manchester United," Falcao said earlier in the season.

The Colombian forward missed the draw against Chelsea on Sunday after picking up a knock in training and may even not be available for the derby against Manchester City on Sunday.
