With United boss Sir Alex Ferguson determined to press on following the club's Premier League title success, the Red Devils are being linked with a host of top class forwards.

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski and former Old Trafford attacked Cristiano Ronaldo are two names in the frame, as is Atletico Madrid's Falcao.

Falcao has impressed many observers with his efforts for Atletico and Asprilla has told his fellow countryman to jump at the chance of making the move to United.

"We were talking and he asked me my opinion on who he should join," Asprilla is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. "He knows that every big club in the world wants him. He is not a player motivated by money - what he wants is somewhere that his family will be happy and where he will have success.

"With teams like Real Madrid, PSG, Manchester City they have good times then they have bad times - that is why I told him he must choose Manchester United. Every season they are challenging - and if he wants success that is where I have told him to go.

"Also they don't have all the behaviour away from the field - with changing coaches every season. They are steady in all that they do - and a well-run club at every level. He is a real family guy - and Radamel will appreciate that and the way that Sir Alex Ferguson protects his players like family.

"If he signs for Manchester United - he would be their missing piece in the Champions League. Robin van Persie and Radamel would be unstoppable."
