It’s not often that the Football Transfer Tavern goes silent, but, that is exactly what has just happened; Matt Law of Mirror Football has wandered in with the remarkable news that Jose Mourinho wants to bring Didier Drogba back to Chelsea.
It is unknown, however, whether the Ivorian’s current club Galatasaray would be willing to do business or whether Drogba would prefer to see out the final year of his contract, which, if he does, would mean he would be offered a role at Chelsea in 12 months.
The bond between Jose and Didier has always been obvious and the Chelsea boss said, only last week: “I can use Didier as a profile to persuade youngsters to follow me because he followed me from day one.”
Drogba spoke about the potential return to West London, earlier in the year, he said: “It would be nice, not just coaching but to help the club.
“For Chelsea I gave everything and, of course, they gave it back to me. I feel at home when I go to London.”
If Drogba did return to the Premier League side, he will be hoping to add to a very successful eight seasons, which saw him win every possible domestic trophy and net 157 goals, in the process.
Furthermore, Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich tried to bring the Galatasaray man back to Stamford Bridge in January and is willing to see Drogba return as a player and/or coach.
