Transfer Talk: Liverpool target Man United striker as Red Devils close in on €35m winger

Struggling Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao is being linked with a move to rivals Liverpool as manager Louis van Gaal looks to reshape his squad this summer.
The Colombian striker started in the 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in a game that all but ended their faint title hopes and has managed just four Premier League goals in an injury-interrupted season.
The 29 year-old will be a United player until his loan deal from AS Monaco runs out at the end of the season and it seems increasingly likely that Louis van Gaal will not retain the services of the frontman.
The Express reports that his agent Jorge Mendes has made contact with Liverpool over a permanent deal this summer, with Brendan Rodgers desperately seeking to bolster his attacking options after a disappointing season.
One player who continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford is PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay.
The 21 year-old Dutch international is familiar to Van Gaal, who chose Depay for his 2014 World Cup squad , where he scored the winning goal against Australia in the group stages, becoming the youngest ever Dutch goalscorer in a World Cup.
The winger is highly-thought of in his homeland and PSV are believed to be holding out for a fee in the region of €35 for the attacker.
