Radamel Falcao was always going to be an Old Trafford favourite the moment he completed his switch to Manchester United on deadline day of the summer transfer window.

After finally scoring his first goal in a Manchester United shirt in the club's victory over Everton ten days ago, Falcao is starting to feel like he belongs at the club.

And one of the major factors in making the striker feel right at home has been the song already anointed for the Colombian by the fans, which according to the striker is "magic."

The Manchester United faithful have taken the 'lo, lo, lo Falcao' song that was sung by Atletico Madrid fans, and the manner and passion with which it is sung has struck quite a chord with Falcao.

"It's magic. It sounds like thunder inside the stadium," said the striker to Manchester Evening News.

Manchester United fans will hope they have plenty more reasons to sing that song as loudly as they can, and Falcao, no doubt, will look to give those supporters every single chance to sing his name around the stadium time and again.

Meanwhile, another player who has been making quite a name for himself at Manchester United – Angel Di Maria – is worth every single penny of the near £60 million, according to former United striker Andy Cole.

"He doesn't [seem overly-expensive] at all," Cold told Manchester United's official website. "The crazy thing with all those guys who have signed for that kind of money is they just take it. It is like water off a duck's back. They get on with what they have to get on with and are all doing really well. Di Maria has certainly been fantastic so far.

"He has played so well and given a little bit of spark. It's what you always want when you come for that kind of money, everyone is expecting something special and he's done just that.

"I think when you come to a football club like Manchester United, there is always going to be pressure but he has played for another massive club in Real Madrid.

"So he is used to having the cameras always on him, you might say having the microscope on him but, the way he has started at United, he won't have a problem as he is clearly a quality player."
