Supporters, who threw missiles onto the pitch when Galatasaray won the title in May, were this time armed to the teeth with flags and scarves to celebrate Falcao’s arrival.

The Colombian established himself as one of the world’s best strikers at Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2013, winning the Copa del Rey, Europa League and Super Cup in the process.

Before that, he had scored a staggering 72 goals in 87 matches during two years at Porto to win the Primeira Liga, the Portuguese Cup, the Portuguese Super Cup and Europa League.

His magnificent form soon secured a £50million move to Monaco, where he lifted the Ligue 1 title after loan spells with Manchester United and Chelsea.

Falcao still has one year left on his contract with the French club, but is yet to feature for Leonardo Jardim’s side this season because of an ankle injury.

The Colombian international hinted that he was keen to move on earlier this summer, and was linked with a switch to David Beckham’s Inter Miami outfit.

“The truth is that I still have a year of contract and the club did not offer me an extension,” Falcao revealed following a friendly victory over Sampdoria last month.

“So I have to think about my future, my family. I am studying the offers I have been offered. These are good opportunities for my career. I have to think about my family.”
