Drogba To Gala?

Turkish giants Galatasaray have made a bid to buy Didier Drogba.

The Ivorian international skipper is itching to escape the poor football in the Chinese Super League, where he moved on a big-money deal after ending his career at Chelsea.

Almost since the day he left Stamford Bridge, Drogba has been linked back to European football.

And while neither Gala nor Drogba himself have commented on the rumours, the consensus amongst European football hacks is that the former Blues beast could be on his way to Turkey after Afcon 2013.

A spokesperson for the powerful striker’s managing Sports PR Company told Press Association Sport: “They [Galatasaray] have made a formal bid for him.”

At this stage it is unclear if Drogba’s potential move will be on loan or on a permanent basis.

But one way or another, it does appear that the African icon will join the transfer revolution underway in Istanbul this January, which has already seen Wesley Sneijder join Gala from Inter Milan.

It is also understood that Gala hope to make Manchester City defender, Kolo Toure, their third big-name signing of the transfer window.

Although until now, City had not contemplated letting the Ivorian defender go in January.
