Radamel Falcao has told Manchester United fans he's joined to win trophies and score goals. The AS Monaco striker's loan agreement was confirmed by United almost two hours after the summer market shut.

"We have very top players. I admire them. I want to meet them for the first time. I am sure that this season will be great for us," said Falcao.

Asked for a message to United fans, he added: "Yes, I want to say thank you because I have read a lot of messages from them. And I hope I can give them a lot of happiness, goals and titles."
