Juventus offered Drogba €10m

Juventus offered Didier Drogba a two-year contract worth €5m a season, France Football have revealed.

It emerged yesterday that the Italian champions had made an unsuccessful late bid for the player and the details of their offer have now been published.

It is being claimed that Juventus director general Beppe Marotta had lined up a €10m contract. Drogba would also have netted a €500,000 bonus per season if he featured in 70 per cent of their games.

Drogba, however, turned down the Italian champions.

Not only is his contract with Shanghai Shenhua more financially lucrative, he would have also had to pay the Chinese side a hefty fee in compensation to get his contract rescinded.

The 34-year-old Ivory Coast international moved to Shanghai during the summer once his Chelsea contract expired.
