Galatasaray and Drogba himself announced earlier this week that the Ivory Coast star had signed for the Turkish league leaders, apparently ending a two-and-a-half year deal with the Chinese Super League side.
“Currently, Drogba is still a player of the Shanghai Shenhua Football Club, and the contract between both parties is still within the term of validity,” Shenhua said in a statement on its website.
“The club is deeply shocked by the Galatasaray Football Club’s violation of rules by contacting a player still under contract. The Shanghai Shenhua FC is collating all the evidence and materials and preparing to submit them to FIFA so as to protect the club’s interests and prevent greater losses,” it said.
