The Colombia international, who joined United on a season's loan from
Monaco, has missed their last four games with a calf injury and has

Southampton on Dec. 8.
The Dutchman said in his news conference: "He has an injury and that

in 205 appearances for his European clubs, has hit back at suggestions

injury in January.
But in his absence, Van Gaal has changed United's tactics and is now
playing with a lone striker, Robin van Persie.
