During the recently closed transfer window, there were rumors being spread around concerning the future of Didier Drogba with the Seattle Sounders being the possibility of his next destination of his football career but according to a spokesman of Galatasaray, they have not been informed of anything regarding their player.
“We have not been informed of anything, the speculation sounds like speculation from the foreign press. We would like Drogba to stay and he is happy at the club. If he wanted out, he would have let us known; if he had agreed with a club from the US, he would talk to us about it first.”
Even at his age, Didier Drogba still is a player that many clubs are interested in signing and he has already scored for Galatasaray a total of 8 goals. His contract with the Turkish club expires at the end of the current campaign and when that moment arrives, he is a free agent and is allowed to speak as well as discuss his future with other clubs that might be interested in signing him.
The former Chelsea player has helped Galatasaray on advancing into the last 16 remaining teams which are fighting on the Champions League. The Ivorian forward scored goals against Copenhagen and Juventus which were just enough for his side to secure a spot into the next stages of the European tournament where they have to face off against Chelsea on March 12.
Even with the accomplishments that Didier Drogba managed to complete with Galatasaray it was not enough for him to secure the African Footballer of the Year award as it was given to Manchester City’s Yaya Toure who has won it 3 consecutive times.
