The Montreal Impact have acquired the rights to the striker Didier Drogba who belonged to the Chicago Fire, which would open the door to the arrival of former Chelsea star with the Montreal club.
According to ESPN, the Impact would have agreed to remit a sum of money in the six-figure compensation Fire, who took advantage of bargaining rights with the Ivorian since his name was on his list of discoveries.
Aged 37, Drogba would sign a 18 month contract earning him more than 3 million per season.
MLS regulations stipulate that a team must return $ 50,000 in compensation to hire a player on another team discovered list, but only if the team with the rights does not have the intention to submit a contract to the desired player. Since the Fire has made an offer to Drogba, it was possible to ask him more to the Impact.
Rumors surrounding the arrival of Drogba in MLS circulating for over a week. It seems that the favorite destination of the Ivorian was Montreal, the only francophone market circuit.
