Demba Ba is close to finalizing a move to Turkish club Besiktas as he is deemed surplus at Chelsea.
Chelsea struggled at the striker position last year and Ba had trouble finding a spot in the rotation. With Chelsea bringing in Diego Costa, Ba wasn't expected to have much playing time, if any. Besiktas are reportedly willing to cover the majority of Ba's wages and the contract will include a clause that allows the Turkish club to buy Ba at the end of the season. Chelsea are also discussing the possibility of bringing in Didier Drogba as a player-coach next season. Drogba is 36 and will likely be used off the bench in a role similar to the one he took with the Ivory Coast this summer. Jul 14 - 12:53 PM
