Newcastle United legend Faustino Asprilla believes Radamel Falcao can help Manchester United win the Champions League.

The Colombian is a target for United and Chelsea.

Asprilla said of his countryman: "It is difficult for me to explain how good he is - he is the best finisher in the world. The only striker who has played in the Premier League who is on his finishing level is Alan Shearer.

"If he signs for Manchester United - he would be their missing piece in the Champions League. Robin van Persie and Radamel would be unstoppable."
