Blind's arrival, in a £14 million ($23 million, 17 million euros) transfer, had been expected, but the signing of prolific 28-year-old frontman Falcao was a major coup for the ailing English giants.
"I am delighted to be joining Manchester United on loan this season," Falcao told the United website. "Manchester United is the biggest club in the world and is clearly determined to get back to the top."
