Merson urges Chelsea to bid £15m for Manchester United striker


Television pundit Paul Merson has urged league-leaders Chelsea to complete a cut-price £15million transfer for Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao.

The former Aston Villa and Arsenal star thinks that the Columbia international would be a real asset to Jose Mourinho’s side.

Merson said: “If he went down to £15million then I think there would be a lorry load of teams after him. He is a good player and I think he’ll get fitter and fitter.

“He hasn’t really had a season; he has only been in and out. He needs to play 20 games and then I think he’ll be back to where he was when, for me, he was of the best centre-forwards in world football.

“I think Chelsea would take him for £15million – they need another centre-forward.” he added.

Manchester United have the first option to sign him in the summer transfer window but only for £43.5million. However, reports suggest the Red Devils will decline the option to sign him.
