Radamel Falcao Monaco

Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp feels there might be a few disgruntled and worried faces in the Manchester United squad following the arrival of Radamel Falcao on transfer deadline day.

Falcao moved to Manchester United in a season-long loan move, with an option of making the move permanent from Monaco. While plenty were expecting Louis Van Gaal and Ed Woodward to go out and sign a midfielder and a defender on the final day of the summer transfer window, United surprised everyone by signing the Colombia goal machine, who was also of interest to Arsenal and Manchester City.

According to Redknapp, the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie will fear for their starting places following the arrival of Falcao.

"How will Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney feel? My guess is they wouldn't be too happy because if he's fit and ready he's as good as both of them, if not better," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

"I'm sure most United fans would have expected a defender to come through the door and maybe a defensive midfield player, but when a player like this becomes available and you get an opportunity to sign him for four years you can't turn him down. Robin van Persie can't play forever. He has just turned 31 and has had injury problems in the past.

"We all talk about how good Diego Costa is, but Falcao used to keep Costa out of the side when he was at Atletico. That tells you everything about how good he is."

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke, though, does not feel accommodating all three superstar forwards in the starting XI will be a problem.

"Of course we've got Rooney and Van Persie at the club, but these players could drop in behind or play left or right of him," said Yorke. "I don't see that being a problem. These players are all tremendous players.

"You look at the likes of Barcelona and what they have in Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar, it's a similar formation Van Gaal and the players will adapt to."

The one thing that the two former players did not dispute about, though, was Falcao's quality and the ridiculous ability to find the back of the net time and again.

"Falcao is a number nine, the ultimate number nine," added Yorke. "You look at his goalscoring record and he's a phenomenal striker. He's not interested in link-up play, he just knows how to hit the back of the net. He's the best goalscorer in the world right now."

And Redknapp concurred. "What they'll have acquired is one of the best centre-forwards in the world -- a very special footballer as long as his knee's right. If he is fit and ready then he's as good as I've ever seen and they've got someone very special."

Redknapp also went as far as saying Manchester United might be the new Galacticos, referring to the term used to identify Real Madrid a few years back when they had the likes of Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Luis Figo and Raul, to just name a few, in the same team.

"Di Maria, Falcao, Rooney, Van Persie... it's almost becoming a bit of a Galacticos now," he said. "It is an embarrassment of riches."
