Manchester United's on-loan striker Radamel Falcao has hinted he could leave the club at the end of the season in search of more regular football, but says he's still committed to the English side.

The Colombian forward missed last year's World Cup through injury then moved on loan from Monaco to United where he has seen limited first-team action and scored few goals under manager Louis van Gaal.

He says any footballer needs to play and is happy playing, he's totally committed to the club, there are eight matches to go in the Premier League and anything can happen.

Falcao says when the championship ends he'll sit down, do an analysis and decide what's best for him.

The 29-year-old was a prolific scorer for Porto, Atletico Madrid and Monaco before his knee ligament injury 14 months ago.

Falcao says he fully respects Van Gaal's decisions and had "faith and hope" that things would change for him at United before the season ends.

He added, however, that other clubs have shown an interest in him.

Falcao says he has fully recovered from last January's knee surgery that prevented him from leading the Colombia attack at the World Cup in Brazil, where his country reached the quarter-finals.
