The Colombia international is not the only addition the Cimbom has made, as it was also announced on twitter that Florin Andone has joined the Turkish club on loan from Premier League side Brighton.
Always thought Argentines were the craziest fans around but seeing videos and photos of Falcao arrival at Galatasaray I'm now no longer sure. Utter madness.— Richard Martin (@Rich9908) September 1, 2019
The Romanian striker has already featured for the Seagulls this season, but he was sent off in their recent fixture against Southampton for a horror tackle on full back Yan Valery.
