Turkish giants Galatasaray target Chelsea’s John Terry


At 32 years of age, John Terry continues to defy the critics at his boyhood club, Chelsea. He started out at Stamford Bridge as a youngster and has been there ever since, winning a glut of trophies in over a decade of service.

Could it be time to call it a day though? The latest rumors link former England captain Terry with Turkish giants Galatasaray. What’s more is that Gala’s new boss is, of course, Roberto Mancini - Terry’s old title rival at Manchester City.

You can read about this rumor and many more - including Edin Dzeko to Borussia Dortmund, a Southampton star to Liverpool and news on Manchester United, Arsenal and more - on today’s Paper Chase.


Boogeyman Drogba denies Arsenal chance at silverware

Old habits are hard to break for Didier Drogba.

The Galatasaray striker just couldn’t stay away from a chance to haunt his old nemesis Arsenal once again, even if it was just the meaningless Emirates Cup. Drogba, who likes scoring goals against Arsenal as much as a normal 6-year-old might enjoy ice cream, scored two goals in the last 12 minutes to seal Galatasaray’s comeback win. The first came from the spot after drawing a rather soft penalty, the game-winner a classy finish off a brilliant Wesley Sneijder pass.

Fans at the Emirates Stadium must have been appalled at the team’s decision to invite Drogba’s team to the preseason dance. Arsene Wenger probably broke several jacket zippers in anger when he heard, because the Drog has been a boogeyman of sorts for the Gunners. While with Chelsea, he scored 13 goals in 14 matches against Arsenal, the most goals he’s tallied against a single opponent in his career.
