Chelsea transfer news: Didier Drogba has signed for Shanghai Shenua
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba will see out the rest of his career with Chinese club Shanghai Shenua after signing a two and a half year deal.
The 34-year-old Ivory Coast international’s last kick for the Blues was to seal their first ever Champions League success and the striker felt it was time for a new challenge.
“I have considered all the offers I have received in the past few weeks, but feel that Shanghai Shenhua FC is the right move for me at this time,” Drogba said.
“I am looking forward to a new challenge, to experiencing a new culture, and excited about the new developments in the Chinese Super League.
“When Chelsea went to China last year, we had a great time and I met some amazing fans. I hope to help promote Chinese football around the world and further improve the links between China and Africa.”
