Falcao's private jet has landed at Manchester airport as the player looks to secure his sensational United move.

The Colombian striker looks to be signing on a loan-to-buy deal, and there's little concrete to suggest there'll be any other deals. It's not what we need, with the midfield and in particular defence looking iffy, but as a shock late transfer it pretty much blows everything else out of the water.

Quite what's going on at United, we don't even understand anymore. Is this a good signing? How are we going to line up now? Who gets dropped out of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Juan Mata? Is his knee going to be a problem? What happened to Arturo Vidal? So many questions. This season looks like it's going to be a very strange one.
