This week, tabloids have been abuzz with speculation (per the Daily Mail) that Manchester United could add to their already-fearsome front line by bringing in Atletico Madrid's prodigious goalscorer, Radamel Falcao.
Chelsea and Manchester City were supposedly leading the race for the Colombian's signature, and, after all, the Red Devils already have four top-quality strikers in the form of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and, to a perhaps lesser extent, Danny Welbeck.
One more cook then would surely spoil the proverbial broth, right?
But Ferguson might need the South American goal machine. The Reds haven't enjoyed the best of seasons in spite of being on the cusp of landing a record 20th Premier League crown and there is still disappointment hanging in the air following that defeat to Real Madrid in this season's Champions League.
Could Falcao be the last piece in the jigsaw that Ferguson has been searching for in order to bring those trophy-laden days back to Old Trafford?
We certainly think so. Find out why.
