Radamel Falcao García, featured with Rayo Vallecano in their first two matches in the Spanish league, agreed to join the Madrid team on the last day of the transfer market in Europe.
The Spanish newspaper El Mundo released this Thursday some details of the arrival of the Colombian striker at Rayo.

“Mario built the bridge on that frenzied August 31, with the tip, still owned by Galatasaray, glued to the telephone in Bolivia, where he was concentrated with his team. An economic agreement with the Turks was necessary to obtain freedom (he had a year of contract) and it was also necessary for the striker to do his part reducing the economic figures on which he had moved (10 gross kilos in Turkey). After 12 o’clock at night, the bombing was confirmed. , the Ray made it official “, published El Mundo.
In addition, they indicated that the economic factor was the least for El ‘Tigre’, which agreed to go from earning 5 to 1.2 million euros plus bonuses.
“At this point, at least for Falcao, who has passed through River Plate, Oporto, Atlético, Monaco, Man. United, Chelsea and Galatasaray, moving more than 100 million, always under the leadership of Jorge Mendes, money is what belongs to less. His salary will be around 1.2 million gross, although he would receive bonuses for the permanence or number of goals. “Radamel has put a lot on his part,” they emphasize at the club, where they remember the arrival of other iconic gunners with that shirt like Hugo Sánchez, Guilherme or Diego Costa, “reported the Spanish media.
Falcao has shown his race as a scorer from the start with Rayo, scoring two goals in two games coming from the bench.
