MANILA, Philippines – Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba underwent a medical exam in an Istanbul hospital ahead of his unveiling as a Galatasaray player later in the week.
The 18-month deal that brings Drogba from Shanghai Shenhua includes transfer fees totaling six million euros, payments of 15,000 euros per match, plus signing on fees of four million euros.
Drogba’s move to Galatasaray has been surrounded by controversy, and Shanghai Shenhua may take the matter to FIFA.
The 34-year-old Drogba, who has been on African Cup of Nations duty with the Ivory Coast, moved to China last year. -- Mornings @ ANC, February 12, 2013
