Colombian forward Radamel Falcao signed for Turkey’s Galatasaray from Monaco in a three-year free transfer deal. Falcao left Atletico Madrid after two seasons in 2013 to join Monaco for a club record 60 million euros. After spending the next two seasons on loan at Manchester United and Chelsea, he returned to Monaco in 2016 and led them to the Ligue 1 title in 2017, netting 67 goals in 101 appearances for the club.

Ahead of his landmark transfer to reigning Turkish champions Galatasaray, Monaco had refused to extend the 33-year-old’s contract, which was due to expire in one year. More than 25,000 flag-waving, cheering fans welcomed Falcao in Istanbul on Sunday, as the striker arrived to sign his new deal with Turkey’s most decorated side.

5. Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan completed a season-long loan move from Arsenal to Roma. The Italian club will pay a loan fee and the 30-year-old’s wages, but there is no option or obligation to buy the Armenia international.

The 30-year-old midfielder came on as a second-half substitute in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham before flying to Italy’s capital the following morning to undergo a medical with the Serie A giants. Mkhitaryan started just 19 league matches last term and has only managed nine goals in all competitions since his move from Manchester United in January 2018. He scored nine goals in 59 appearances for Arsenal.
