Didier Drogba has confirmed that he will be leaving Galatasaray.

The Ivory Coast star took to Instagram to reveal the news and say his goodbyes to the Turkish fans.

He wrote: ‘Dear Fans, dear brothers, dear sisters, since day one of my arrival thanks to you all, I felt at home here in Turkey.

‘Sharing, seeing, feeling the passion, sincerity and warm hospitality of My Turkish people is trully unforgettable.

The 36-year-old striker could be set for a sensational return to former club Chelsea with reports claiming that Jose Mourinho is keen for Drogba to return to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea fans would surely welcome Drogba back to Stamford Bridge with open arms after his last kick of a ball for the Blues handed them their first ever Champions League title in 2012.

Whether Drogba plans to prolong his playing career is still unknown, but his success in Turkey went some way to proving that there’s life in the old Drog yet.
