Galatasaray president Burak Elmas has said the club's financial problems mean they can no longer afford to keep Falcao or former West Ham midfielder Sofiane Feghouli.
'I talked to Falcao and Feghouli,' he told reporters.
'They provided very good services to us but with this wage structure we can't pay their wages. We want them to find a club.'
Gala have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic's impact on ticket sales while they suffered another financial hit last month when they were knocked out of the Champions League by PSG Eindhoven.

Elmas added: 'I hope they will respond and they will find a club for themselves in a short time.
'We part ways with good relations.
'This is a management decision and we won't consider them for the coming season.'
