Radamel Falcao has signed for Rayo Vallecano after his contract with Galatasaray was terminated by mutual consent.

As reported by the club’s official website, the 35-year-old returns to LaLiga, where he previously played for Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2013. 

Falcao endured much frustration in England as he struggled to make an impact on loan at Manchester United from Monaco in the 2014-15 season and at Chelsea during the following campaign.

However, he fared rather better at Galatsaray as he scored 20 goals in 43 appearances.

After starting out at Lanceros Boyaca, Falcao moved to River Plate, where he won the title.

He subsequently moved to Porto, for whom he scored an impressive 72 goals in 87 games and he also boasted a return of 70 goals in 91 appearances for Atletico Madrid, winning the Europa League with both clubs.
