Chelsea star Didier Drogba could be making a move to Turkey, with Galatasaray willing to pay a hug fee for the star, according to the Daily Mirror.
Drogba has had trouble finding his feet this season at Chelsea, suffering injury and playing second fiddle to Fernando Torres.
Tottenham had recently emerged as favourites to sign Drobga, but Galatasaray look to have a higher budget for the summer, and the striker’s level of talent won’t come cheap.
Drogba is reportedly about to receive an offer from the Turkish giants for a staggering £5 million a year, with a long term contract on the table for the Ivory Coast international.
Drogba is seen as the perfect match for Johan Elmander, Galatasaray’s soon to be striker who is leaving Bolton on a free transfer, and the move would come as a twist for Chelsea, who are reportedly trying to garner Turkey manager Guus Hiddinck’s services.
Galatasaray reportedly see the 33-year-old’s signature as the top priority in their transfer wish list, and will seek permission from Chelsea to talk to Drogba’s agent as well as the star himself.
The only problem with Galatasaray’s bid is their inability to compete in the Champions League, which may turn the trophy hungry striker off, as Chelsea look to challenge for the top European trophy next season.
