Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder stated that he would like Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to return to the club.
“Yes, I would like to see him [Drogba] back,” Sneijder told Fanatik.
Drogba spent two seasons at Galatasaray and scored 20 goals in 53 games before joining Chelsea in the summer.
The Ivory Coast international won the Süper Lig, Turkish Cup and reached the quarter-final of the Champions League while at the Lions.
The Blues striker recently congratulated his former Galatasaray teammates for winning the 2014-15 Süper Lig title.
Drogba tweeted, “Congrats to my people @sneijder10official @_felipemeloo_ @aurelienchedjou21 @colakemre52 @bruma_11 @1nando_1 @alextelles13 #burakYilmaz #semihKaya #selcukinan #korayGunter #umutbulut @aydinylmz7 #hamitAltintop #hakanBalta #yekta.”
The 37-year-old maintains close ties with Turkey, often visiting Istanbul and he is also a brand ambassador for Turkish Airlines.
Galatasaray won the league title for the 20th time on Monday 25 May and will wear the fourth star for the first time in Süper Lig history against Rizespor on Saturday 30 May.
Drogba is expected to leave Chelsea and has been linked with a move to the MLS.
Former Galatasaray board member Ergun Gürsoy revealed that Drogba could return to Galatasaray in a coaching role when he left the club in the summer.
“Drogba will return to Galatasaray in the future for a coaching role,” Gürsoy told Radyospor.
