REVEALED: Man Utd striker Falcao JEALOUS of James' Real Madrid success

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao is JEALOUS of Colombia teammate James Rodriguez's success with Real Madrid. In contrast to James' instant impact at Real, Falcao has struggled for form and fitness since his summer move from AS Monaco.

Colombian football journalist Jaime Orlando Dimas told El Chiringuinto de Neox: "Falcao is jealous of James. Falcao is a media man. After the injury he missed out signing for Real Madrid, the club weren't willing to bet on a player who does not know how his knee will respond.

"He has had an emotional letdown, he was the star of the team, but did not go to World Cup and James was outstanding.

"They have a great friendship, but it hurt him a lot."
