Radamel Falcao bagged the winner on his Galatasaray debut against Kasimpasa on Friday night.

The Turkish Super Lig club signed the Colombia forward, who has been at the Ligue 1 club since signing for £50m from Atletico Madrid in 2013, on a free transfer. 

Falcao has also had loan spells at Manchester United and Chelsea during his time in the principality, but the striker’s arrival in Turkey has certainly excited the Galatasaray fanbase in Istanbul.

Photos from outside the airport showed flares being lit, and masses of supporters tightly bunched together.

There was also a strong police presence, but no trouble seemed to arise.

The 33-year-old also live streamed his arrival on his Instagram, showing the legions of delighted fans greeting him at the airport.

Falcao joined a number of big-name arrivals to the club this summer, which include Steven Nzonzi, Jean Michael Seri and Ryan Babel.

The club are currently in fifth place in the Turkish Super Lig after four matches having played a game more than anyone else.
