38192 - Drogba signs for Galatasaray

Drogba said through his representatives, Sports PR Company, on Twitter: "The opportunity to play for this great club was an offer that I could not turn down.
"I am looking forward to playing in the Champions League again, against the best clubs in Europe."
Drogba's move to Turkey brings to an end a six-month stint in China. He moved to Shanghai last June soon after helping Chelsea win their first Champions League title, the striker scoring the winning penalty in a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Bayern Munich. He signed a two-and-a-half year deal reportedly worth £200,000 a week with Shanghai but was repeatedly linked with a move back to Europe in recent months. Gala are five points clear at the top of the Super Lig standings and are through to the last-16 of the Champions League, where they face Schalke.
