A loan move to United is smart business too for both him and the club. Van Persie's days as a top striker are done, especially if the reports on his knee are true. Rooney has also peaked and like van Persie, he's static and predictable. Falcao comes with some age and injury risk too, but he's the best #9 in the game, second to Suarez. His off the ball movement, link-up play, and finishing are outstanding. He's Chicharito, with more than just a knack for scoring goals.
This has been an excellent Summer transfer window for United. They get two CM, one of whom can play in defense (Daley Blind). There's a decent center-half in Marcos Rojo with some upside and a terrific left-back for the next decade in Luke Shaw. Angel di Maria was a must and he's great as a midfielder or winger. I wasn't expecting Falcao at all, and as an extra bonus, neither City nor Arsenal got him. United are one CB and one CM from challenging for the league again.
The only potentially big downside is Danny Welbeck being sold to Arsenal. I'm really not sure if he'll break out like Daniel Sturridge did at Liverpool (to Chelsea and City's expense), but I think he could develop nicely for Arsenal. He's played well on the off chance he played as a center forward and he'll fit in with Arsenal's system, since he also has a flair for the nifty 1-2 passing. Unlike Sturridge, Welbeck hasn't shown that he can score goals consistently with the best of them though.
