MANCHESTER UNITED flop Radamel Falcao has terminated his Galatasaray contract and signed for Rayo Vallecano.
The former Chelsea striker has been with the Turkish giants since leaving the Red Devils in 2019 but has negotiated his departure so he can join up with the newly promoted Spanish side
The 35-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the LaLiga outfit.
Falcao was said to be disappointed Galatsaray missed out on Champions League qualification last season.
Serie A sides Genoa and Venezia were also said to be keen.
But he has sealed a move back to Spain where he burst onto the scene with Atletico Madrid.
He once scored 52 LaLiga goals in just 68 games for Atleti.
Such form earned him a move to Monaco and then Man Utd and Chelsea.

But his best years have definitely been spent on the continent with Monaco, Atletico and Porto.
The Colombia international scored 72 goals in 87 Porto matches.
And 83 in 140 for Monaco.
He then notched 70 in 91 for Atletico before joining the Red Devils.
But he failed to impress at Old Trafford – scoring just four in 29 before a loan spell at Stamford Bridge saw him manage just one goal in 12.
However, his form picked up in Turkey where he bagged 20 goals in 43 for Galatasaray in the last two seasons.
