Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has confirmed that he has signed with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua on a two-and-a-half year deal.
Drogba did not agree a new deal with Chelsea after helping them to beat Bayern Munich to win the Champions League. He scored the winning penalty in the final in Germany.
Drogba said: "I have considered all the offers I have received in the past few weeks, but feel that Shanghai Shenhua FC is the right move for me at this time.
"I am looking forward to a new challenge, to experiencing a new culture, and excited about the new developments in the Chinese Super League. When Chelsea went to China last year, we had a great time."
Zhu Jun owner of Shanghai Shenhua FC said: "We have been wanting to sign Didier for a while, and are very happy that it has finally happened. He is an incredible player."
The striker will fly out to join his new team in July.
