The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was still to be completed before the transfer window closed at 2200 GMT Monday.
 Louis Van Gaal's managerial reputation could hang on his ability to mold a team from the $250-million summer transfer spending — having loaded the team with attacking additions rather than significantly strengthening the shaky defense.
With just two goals in four games, United's need for a scorer like Falcao has become clear, although the deal was unexpected as late as Sunday on the eve of transfer deadline day.

 following the humiliating loss at third-tier club MK Dons in the League Cup last week, United only has Premier League games until the FA Cup third round in January.
