 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.
Powerful in the air and explosive on the ball, Falcao should offer United a more potent, physical presence inside the penalty area as more of a poacher than Rooney or Van Persie.
 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.
