Didier Drogba was last week reported to be joining Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua,and the great news was that he was to earn 200,000 pounds ($314,000) a week from the club.
Rumors are however emerging that the great striker may choose to stay in Europe and play for Barcelona.When Drogba heard of an interest from Barcelona , he got on a plane and arrived in Barcelona to handle the talks.
What ever comes out of the talks,the issue of money remains static ,There is no way Barcelona are paying for Didier Drogba the kind of money he’s about to make in China.
Tito Vilanova Barcelona manager and his team may feel they need an experienced striker in their ranks, but that would make him the highest paid player on the team, or something near the top spot, currently occupied by Lionel Messi.
Didier Drogba left Chelsea after helping them win the Champions League final against Bayern Munich last month.If he joins the Chinese club he could arrive in Shanghai to begin playing for the club is early July.
Drogba’s two-and-a-half-year contract with Shanghai Shenhua deal includes him becoming a spokesman for a Chinese online gaming company, in a similar arrangement to French striker Anelka, who joined Shenhua in January.
