Radamel Falcao is set to join Galatasaray after the Turkish giants revealed talks are underway to sign the veteran striker from Monaco.
Falcao, who is yet to feature for Monaco this season due to an ankle injury, has been linked to Galatasaray throughout the transfer window.
The 33-year-old is now poised to swap Monaco for Istanbul after Galatasaray announced they have started negotiations over the transfer of the Colombian.
"Negotiations have started with the footballer and club AS Monaco on the transfer of Radamel Falcao to our club," Galatasaray's statement read on Saturday.
