Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is set to join Juventus on a two-year deal, Football Italia reports.

Juventus have been recently tracking Drogba with his Galatasary contract expiring this summer, and it seems they have reached an agreement.

Reports from Turkey suggest that the deal is worth €4.5m over the course of two years, with performance incentives also added to the contract.

Juve boss Antonio Conte easily guided the Old Lady to a third consecutive Serie A title last season, but wants to put up a real challenge in the Champions League next term and sees Drogba as an important addition.

This is a big blow for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, who were also looking to bring the Ivorian legend back to Stamford Bridge.

The 36-year-old left the Blues back in 2012, after scoring the decisive penalty in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

He is now leading the Ivory Coast at this summer’s World Cup, beating Japan 2-1 in their first game of the competition.
