Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has signed an 18-month contract at Galatasaray, according to reports in Turkey.

The former Chelsea striker is currently on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Ivory Coast but Eurosport and official Turkish League broadcaster LigTV are reporting that Drogba has found the time to agree a move to Turkey from Shanghai Shenhua.


He is expected to complete a £5million move to the Turkish side and will receive a signing on bonus of £3m.
                                            
Drogba will also reportedly receive a bonus of £21,000 for each game he plays, up to a maximum of £425,000 a year, meaning he could earn £9.6m over the 18 months.

The 34-year-old has found it hard to settle in China and with Shenhua's financial problems worsening they have already offloaded Drogba's former Chelsea team-mate Nicolas Anelka to Juventus this week.
