The poll was split right down the middle over whether the Colombian striker represents money well spent or a total waste of cash
Debate has raged across social media and news outlets on deadline day over how necessary it is of the Red Devils to splash €10 million on a one-year loan for the prolific striker or foolish for not bolstering up their defence.
Plenty of football fans are stunned that Louis van Gaal has not signed a world-class centre-back instead and that showed in our poll, with 7,867 people (48.2 per cent) voting against the sensibility of bringing on board the Colombia international for at least a year.
However, a tiny majority of voters - 48.4% or 7,895 football fans - do think that Falcao might just be the man the Dutch manager needs to reinvigorate his ailing team, who have failed to win a competitive game under him yet.
Five hundred and fifty five voters are unsure either way if the former Atletico Madrid and Porto forward - who missed the second half of the season and the World Cup with a cruciate ligament injury - will thrive or flop at Old Trafford.
