The Ivory Coast legend’s move to China following the expiration of his Chelsea contract was certainly not a successful free transfer, as ownership issues meant getting paid was a problem.

Following the breakdown of his contract at Shanghai Shenhua, Drogba chose to move to Turkish side Galatasaray and pair him with Holland international Wesley Sneijder to make a formidable partnership that would fire them to the Super Lig title last year.
