Didier Drogba has been tipped to sign for Chelsea for the second time. The Ivory Coast international has already had a long stint at Stamford Bridge from 2004 to 2012 and if the reports are to be believed, he would be making his way to West London this summer again.
Drogba’s contract at his current club Galatasaray SK is finished and he is not likely to get an extension there. So, he would be a free agent during the transfer window.
The Blues are understood to have planned to approach Drogba once he is back from the World Cup and if both the parties get settled on some kind of an agreement, the veteran striker would be seen in Blue jersey during the upcoming season.
It’s the Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, who is the most keen to land Drogba at Stamford Bridge considering the fact that his experience can prove to be vital for his team.
Drogba had achieved a lot during his first tenure at Chelsea. He was an absolute hero among the club fans and people were actually surprised when he decided to take a transfer away from England in the summer of 2012.
Chelsea had won the European Cup that year and Drogba had done his bit in that by successfully converting a penalty in the final match of the tournament.
But, he couldn’t agree terms with the club regarding a new deal and thus, had to leave.
He had even expressed his disappointment over that in one of his interviews earlier this year.
Talking to the correspondent of a newspaper, Drogba had said, “That wouldn’t be the end for me there at Stamford Bridge if a midway had been found by the two parties. However, there is no point discussing that now.”
