Seldom has a debut been as feverishly anticipated on English shores as that of Manchester United’s new striker Radamel Falcao, who has been boosted to open the scoring at home to QPR by Ladbrokes.
The bookmaker has cranked up the Colombian’s odds from 3/1 to 7/2 to break the deadlock on his Old Trafford bow against the R’s.
Given the frightening goal-scoring prowess of the man referred to as El Tigre in his native Colombia, Ladbrokes customers should be clawing to get a piece of this offer.
Before even making his deadline day loan move to Manchester, the Monaco striker had already bagged twice in Ligue 1 this season.
Clearly making up for lost time after agonisingly missing out on the World Cup through injury, Falcao will be chomping at the bit to open his Red Devils account on his debut.
Scoring on his debut wasn’t a problem home or away for Falcao at Monaco, where he opened he also broke the deadlock at home to Montpellier to announce his arrival.
The Colombian international also got off the mark for former club Atletico Madrid on his full home debut, finding the net as early as the third minute against Celtic in the Europa League.
And you guessed it, one of European football’s deadliest marksmen also bagged on his Porto debut before that, before going on to score in the next three games as well.
Before arriving at Old Trafford, the 28-year-old’s incredible goal-scoring ratio now stands at 104 strikes in 139 league appearances for the aforementioned trio of clubs.
Look out Premier League!
