LONDON (AP) Manchester United signed Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco early Tuesday in a coup by the struggling club on the final day of the summer transfer window.

The record 20-time English champions are paying around $9 million to Monaco to take Falco on loan for the season with an option to buy the 28-year-old Colombia striker.

Bringing one of the hottest properties in world soccer to Old Trafford was a surprise move by United's owners, with the Glazer family under pressure to spend after a rapid decline since Alex Ferguson retired as manager in May 2013 after more than 26 years in charge.
