Didier Drogba has agreed to a 12-month contract with Brazilian side Corinthians, Goal understands.
It is believed that the Ivorian frontman will earn $150,000-per-month over the course of a one-year deal.
Drogba is now 38 years of age, but has already stated his intention to prolong a distinguished playing career after parting company with MLS side Montreal Impact at the end of the 2016 season.
"I want to play," Drogba told Canal+.
"I still have my legs and I'm still like a kid with the ball. My knee got a bit annoyed [last season] but I feel good.”
The Chelsea legend has admitted that he would welcome the opportunity to return to Marseille – the club that helped to propel him to superstardom.
