Manchester United have reportedly not yet made a decision on whether Radamel Falcao has a long-term future at the club.
The Premier League club have the option to sign on-loan Monaco man Falcao permanently for £43m at the end of the season.
However, according to PA, United are yet to make up their mind on the 29-year-old, who has scored four goals in 20 appearances this season.
It is thought that Van Gaal won't inform Monaco of the club's decision until the end of the season in May. With Robin van Persie out injured, Falcao is set for a run in the team and has the chance to impress.
