|Soccer-Tasty icing, cherry on top but will United cake crumble? [Yahoo! Sports: September 2, 2014, 10:56 am]
By Ed Osmond LONDON, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Manchester United emerged from the transfer window with a rich icing and the brightest of cherries to decorate their cake but the suspicion remains that the team's base may crumble under pressure. Colombia striker Radamel Falcao has the pedigree to light up Old Trafford and Argentine midfielder Angel Di Maria the class to fill the club's iconic number seven shirt with distinction. The high-profile signings are consistent with United's history of playing attacking football and proof that despite the club's lack of European football this season they can still attract the world's top players. Swapping Falcao for Javier Hernandez and Di Maria for Shinji Kagawa is indisputably a significant upgrade.

By Graham Wood ATHENS, Sep 2 (Reuters) - Greece defender Avraam Papadopoulos has said his soured relationship with Olympiakos Piraeus coach Michel was the reason for his departure from the Greek champions.

A week after signing Angel Di Maria, Manchester United persuaded striker Radamel Falcao to join the faltering club in European football's most eye-catching switch as the summer transfer window closed. Falcao's season-long loan from Monaco is set to cost United around $25 million for the salary and fee to the French club, although there is an option to then sign the Colombia forward permanently.

''(Falcao) is one of the most prolific goalscorers in the game,'' Van Gaal said.
