Louis van Gaal has revealed that Radamel Falcao will miss Sunday's Manchester derby through injury, though Wayne Rooney returns to the fold.
Rooney has sat out the Red Devils' last three matches after being sent-off against West Ham in September, and though he suffered a foot injury earlier in the week, will be fit to make his return to the starting XI.
But Falcao, who Goal revealed is set to join the Old Trafford outfit permanently for Ł44 million in the summer following his current one-year loan deal from Monaco, remains on the sidelines after picking up a knock in training.
Van Gaal told reporters: "Falcao is still injured. Rooney was never injured. He shall play, he is my captain. I think [Antonio] Valencia is fit again to play.
