Transfer Deadline Day: The national picture

Radamel Falcao

Radamel Falcao’s year-long loan switch to Manchester United was the big talking point on transfer deadline day.

The 28-year-old Columbian forward put the finishing touches to his temporary switch from Monaco during the early hours of Tuesday morning after the Red Devils were granted an extension by the Premier League.

And it is the wage bill Manchester United are now lumbered with that has caught all the attention about this deal.

Falcao is reported to be set for a £24million salary during his year at Old Trafford, or a staggering £340,000 a week, plus a £6million loan fee payable to Monaco.

And he could be set for a permanent switch next summer with a figure of £57million agreed.

Alongside Falcao’s arrival in Manchester, the other big deal in the final few hours of the window saw a player leaving the Red Devils.

Danny Welbeck joined Arsenal in a £16million switch, another deal done well past the deadline.

Javier Hernandez left Old Trafford on a season long loan to Real Madrid while Dutch midfielder Daley Blind arrived on a £13.8million switch from Ajax.

Hull were busy and broke the club’s transfer record to bring in Abel Hernandez from Palermo for £10million.

The Tigers also snapped up Gaston Ramirez on a season-long loan from Southampton and pushed through a deal for Newcastle United’s Hatem Ben Arfa as the window began to close.
