Van Gaal: Manchester United Won’t Take It Easy On Bruce’s Hull

Louis Van Gaal insists he will play his strongest Manchester United side on the final day of the season at Hull City.

Chelsea FC Interested In Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao

Premier League champions Chelsea FC are reportedly interested in signing on-loan Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao in the summer. It was reported earlier that Jose Mourinho is looking forward to bring in a cover for injury prone forward Diego Costa. The champions are in a dilemma whether to release veteran striker Didier Drogba or offer him a fresh contract. Diego Costa, who was bought from Atletico Madrid last season, did a fairly good job for Chelsea. He played 25 matches for the club in the Premier League and scored 19 goals.

Several other quality strikers were linked with the club, but recent rumours suggest that the Chelsea gaffer wants Colombian international Radamel Falcao who had a disappointing season with Manchester United. Falcao joined the Red Devils on the transfer deadline day, last summer, on a loan […] Read more »
