Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao says "he is ready to train" again, suggesting he will be available for the visit to Arsenal on 22 November after the international break

The 29-year-old striker suffered a calf injury during a training session ahead of the Chelsea clash on 26 October and has been unable to play since.

Falcao has missed the last three Premier League games against the Blues, Manchester City and Crystal Palace – while earlier this week Colombian boss Jose Pekerman also ruled out him from the squad to face USA on this Thursday at Craven Cottage and Slovenia four days later.

But Falcao has now suggested he will be available for manager Louis van Gaal for the crucial trip to the Emirates Stadium later this month, after confirming in his Instragram account that he "is ready to train with the best motivation" again.

On Monday the United striker tried to play down recent reports claiming his injury may prevent him taking part on a regular basis at Old Trafford: "One fool speculates. A few others lacking objectivity respond and millions believe lies. It is disastrous what a few fools can do."

Having only scored one goal in three starting appearances at the Premier League since his sensational deadline day loan from Monaco, the Colombian international is eager to prove he can eventually regain his best form at Old Trafford – and secure a permanent move next summer once his loan deal expires.
