Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are waiting on a decision regarding their legendary striker after the Daily Express explained how Jose Mourinho has said that Roman Abramovich will have the final decision on Didier Drogba’s future.
The 37-year-old played a big role in their 3-1 win over Leicester City last night after he scored an equaliser after the Blues went a goal down.
The Ivorian superstar has made 27 appearances this season as he has stepped in for the injured Diego Costa, and his experience has helped Chelsea towards their first title in five years.
And his recent role for the London club has brought up speculation surrounding a possible extension to his contract, which expires in the summer.
It is expected that if Abramovich chooses not offer Drogba a new deal, then Mourinho will fight to keep him at the club as a coach.
Because plenty of people believe the Russian businessman will refuse to offer someone at Drogba’s old age a new deal, considering they let Frank Lampard leave last year.
