According to AS, Galatasaray have reached an agreement with Radamel Falcao to have the contract between them, which was set to run until the summer of 2022, terminated this January.

Falcao was heavily linked with a move to Inter Miami over the summer, and he reportedly expressed his desire to play in the MLS due to its competitiveness, but the club owned by David Beckham couldn’t find common ground with Galatasaray over the size of a potential transfer fee and the move collapsed. Now, however, the financial implications caused by the Covid-19 pandemic are starting to be severely felt at the Turkish club, who are paying the Colombian striker wages amounting to nearly €6 million per season.

Galatasaray are now prepared to let Falcao leave for free in order to ease the burden on their finances, and the 34-year-old is expected to move to Miami ahead of the 2021 MLS season.

Falcao has been quoted in saying he’d love a move to Miami because a lot of Colombians lived there and it reminded him of his own country.
