7.5 million euros per season and 2.5 million at signature. This is the mega-offer that Galatasaray put it on the table for Didier Drogba (34). Bulent Tulun, Sinan Kalpakcıoglu and Ceylan Caliskan already went to South Africa, where the Ivorian Drogba plays at African Nations Cup with his country’s national football team. To the three will be joined Turkish club’s financial advisor, who had a decisive role in bringing Wesley Sneijder to Istanbul.
Both Turkish and Italian press inform negotiations between the two clubs, predicting that next week will finalize the agreement. Galatasaray is qualified in the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will face the Germans from Schalke 04. The Dutchman Sneijder said when he was officially presented that Jose Mourinho, the coach with who he won the Champions League with Inter, advised to follow the Turkish bid. Didier Drogba has also worked with the Portuguese tactician at Chelsea and has kept a close relationship.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that apart Drogba, Galatasaray representatives will try to convince and Kolo Toure to join to the new club’s project in Istanbul.
