Didier Drogba turned down an official offer from Juventus on transfer deadline day in order to stay with Shanghai Shenhua.
According to the latest edition of France Football, available tomorrow, the Italian giants made a late attempt to sign the Ivory Coast ace.
Drogba, however, rejected the idea of a Turin switch by committing his future to his current Chinese side.
The 34-year-old moved to Shanghai Shenhua in June after he reportedly signed a two-and-a-half year deal worth £200,000 a week.
He left Chelsea in the summer at the end of his contract.
