The Montreal Impact have completed their signing of Didier Drogba.

Because of MLS rules, Drogba initially signed with the Chicago Fire, who then traded him to Montreal for allocation money.


Drogba is believed to have signed a contract worth more than $3 million per season.

"It's an honor to welcome Didier Drogba to the Impact," said Impact president Joey Saputo in a club statement. "From the first conversation I had with him, I felt that he really wanted to play in Montreal. This is one of the biggest days in club history and his arrival to the club will be beneficial in every aspect."
