Turkish club Galatasaray announced on Wednesday his contract with French striker Bafetimbi Gomis.
French striker Bafetimbi Gomis has returned to Galatasaray just days after his contract was terminated by mutual consent with Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal on Wednesday. Galatasaray confirmed in a statement that it had reached “an agreement for the transfer of Bafetimbi Gomis”, without specifying the term of the deal or the terms of the contract.
The veteran French striker previously wore the Turkish team’s shirt during the 2017-2018 season. Club president Burak Elmas said on Wednesday: “Gomis loves Galatasaray very much. He said he had not yet finished his mission here. “He is a player who can make a positive impact on the team.
The 36-year-old scorer said on his Twitter page on Sunday that he was “happy to be back” to Istanbul, although there was no confirmation from Galatasaray in terms of signing a contract between them.
Gomis defended France’s Saint-Etienne and Lyon and Swansea City’s Welsh side in the English Premier League, before moving to Galatasaray and then Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal and helped the latter to the AFC Champions League title twice in 2019 and 2021.
Last week Al Hilal announced the departure of the French striker after 154 games, in which he scored 116 goals.
