Radamel Falcao has said he is concentrating on Manchester United's final eight games of the season rather than thinking about speculation linking him with a move to Juventus.

The striker has endured a woeful season since moving to Old Trafford on loan from Monaco. With just four goals for the Red Devils, the former Atletico Madrid and Porto player is now struggling to even get in the side.

In United's two most recent games - impressive wins over Tottenham and Liverpool - he's come on in the 83rd minute. For the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal he wasn't used at all.

The situation has led to an expectancy that United won't take up the option to make his transfer a permanent one when his loan deal expires, however his two goals for Colombia against Bahrain on Thursday were a reminder of his reputation as one of the most deadly finishers on the planet.

Falcao has found himself linked with a host of clubs, including United's Premier League rivals Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool. He's also been linked with Serie A leaders Juventus, although the 29-year-old has played down the speculation.

"Juventus looking for me? They talk a lot, but now I'm focused 100 per cent on Manchester United,” he told Colombia’s Radio Caracol.


Having indicated recently that he wants to be at a club where he plays regularly, Falcao appeared to confirm that attitude.

"Before the end of the season there are some crucial matches and I hope that this situation will change."
