Ex-Chelsea star Drogba joins Galatasaray: Turkish report

 
 

ANKARA (REUTERS) - Ivory Coast captain and former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has left Shanghai Shenhua to sign a 1-1/2 year contract with Galatasaray, Turkish broadcaster CNN Turk said on Sunday.

The channel did not give any more information and Galatasaray could not be reached for immediate comment.

The 34-year-old, who is on African Nations Cup duty with his country, moved to China after helping Chelsea win the Champions League last May.

Drogba signed a 2-1/2 year deal with Shenhua in June that was, according to media reports, worth around US$300,000 (S$370,800) a week.
