Juventus Continue Trying for Didier Drogba

May 27, 2014 - 1:00 pm

Didier Drogba, Chelsea legend and newly ex-Galatasaray striker has been linked to Juventus heavily over the past few weeks. Indeed, Juventus have been linked with Drogba on and off for the past few transfer windows. Now, with Drogba out of contract, it appears a deal with Juve may be possible – if they can agree on the contract.

According to TuttomercatoWeb Juve and Drogba have seemingly agreed on the salary – four million, plus bonuses. This is larger than the 3.5 million per year figure that was floating around last week. Drogba also wants a two year contract, which may not be tenable for Juve.

Meanwhile, also according to TMW, Chelsea – and Jose Mourinho- could be waiting in the wings to sign Drogba.

    Drogba? Sanchez? Eto’o? Gabbiadini? Berardi? What a summer this could be. I really cant pay attention to any transfers yet because Im too excited for the Azzurri in Brazil. Anyways, great season. So happy Conte is staying.

            It’s the picture that throws me off, a few people have had it and it’s all just blurred into one! Recently it’s all been scudetto and transfer talk but the pokemon talk will return once all that dies down! It does? I watch my pokemon on iani.me got the pokemon tv app on my phone too, that’s pretty good!

            Haha naw twitch.tv did an event where twitch viewers controlled the game by typing in the controls to the chat. It was hilarious watching 30,000 people trying to get around. It took like 27 days of constant play, but they beat the game and mewtwo.

    Looks like Chelsea could come in with an offer for Pogba. What would you all like in return if Pogba was to leave for Chelsea?

    Id take Hazard and cash, maybe add in Piazon.

      Juventin1897 May 28, 2014 at 5:42 pm

      Cash. Hazard is world class, but I cant see him doing amazingly in Italy. Id prefer to see us get 80-100m for pogba. Which we definitely can.

      Don’t want Piazon anymore. He denied us back then for Chelsea so now he can suck it.

        Yeah willian has played pretty much the same he did. The problem is he doesnt shine like he did because there’s so many better players on the pitch.

    Marotta proclaims that none of our stars will be leaving this summer. Also says an offer has been made to Drogba, we have indeed held talks with Udinese about Pereyra, and that they really like Sanchez, but havent made a move.

    • Avatar
      DutchJuve May 28, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      And thats pretty much what i came here to say 😛

      I am so happy with Marotta saying Vidal and Pogba won’t leave. He has been so honest in this interview even saying Madrid are the ones having interest in Vidal.
      Hoping he will make that move for Sanchez as i really think we can get him and he is willing to come. Drogba i wouldn’t be 100% against, but some of our strikers will have to leave if he comes. I love Drogba as a player and i think he can still add to our team with his scoring ability and i think we can use him in CL. I just wonder how Tevez and Drogba will work out, because he’s not worth it if Tevez has to leave.
      Don’t know Pereyra.

        Madrid are just a of bunch pigs … like honestly, what the fuck do they need vidal for? they’re stacked with players they’ve paid 30-40 million for that just sit on the bench.. Isco, Illmarendi or whatever the fuck his name is, and so on … it’s like they have to horde every player on the planet. Vidal at Madrid isn’t even a fit, why go there and have to worry about playing time…. so dumb.

          Although i do respect them, i agree with what you just said. Its because they would literally be nothing without all their purchases. Im not just speaking of their level of competitiveness, but also their brand. They havent won the Cl in 12 years, yet they still have a large fan base and thats due to all their high profile signings. I guess you can say their signings keep them on the map of the footballing world.

            And RM is most successful club is football. That was 10 European cups for them. Of course RM has underachieved since the turn of the millennium. But they also have always been in the mix. Semi’s and finals almost every year. And winning the CL can take a stroke of luck.

    Id sell tevez, seba, and vucinic to finance a move for sanchez and griezmann. Those two on the wings would be incredible

      Juventin1897 May 29, 2014 at 2:56 am

      Tevez wont move. Seba, vucinic, quagliarella could raise 30m for one, but id rather spend 30m on Garay and kolorov not Griezman. If we get Sanchez that is. Also Gabbiadini is perfect to play opposite sanchez.

      Edit: If we Bonucci has a good world cup we could sell him for unreal amounts to big $$ teams.

            Yeah. Hes 23, really good talent. He has shown hard working too. Pogba and him are friends and his addition would give pogba and added level of comfort at Juve. Ontop of his worth on the field.

        No way on earth should we sell bonucci! Also even if he does it’ll probably be overlooked anyway.. He was Italy’s best defender in the euros but it was totally overlooked by almost everyone.

    Soo before the transfer market started and the media re linked us to Sanchez, i got this very strong feeling that he would join us and it wont go away… So chances are we are going to get him. Okay maybe it wont happen, but if it does; i called it!

      Pretty much every other Juve fan had that feeling too at some time during him being linked to us. Atleast 70% of them has said it out loud since then, big chance someone said it before you, so you didn’t call it.
