Didier Drogba’s enormous fortune is impressive, considering the Ivorian didn’t earn a big move until his 2004 transfer to Chelsea at the age of 26. He played 104 times, scoring 65 goals for the Ivory Coast national team. Since then the Chelsea legend has signed a number of lucrative contracts. At the height of his powers at Chelsea he was paid $170,000 a week, a figure dwarfed by the staggering $325,000 he earned in his short spell at Shanghai Shenhua. He earned $5.2million a year at Galatasaray, however with a number of lucrative sponsorship deals his actual earnings a year are far more. He returned to English club Chelsea on £80,000 a week. His Didier Drogba Foundation is funding up to five children’s health centres in Ivory Coast. A recent charity ball raised further funds for the foundation, which has more than £1m assets. He was among the 2015 Sunday Times’ Giving List, gifting more than 1.5% of his wealth to charity.
