Chelsea fans are looking like they knew it all along here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro report that Manchester City will not be swooping for Didier Drogba after all.
Now whilst the majority of Blues fans would like to think that was all down to the player himself, the publication are reporting that the Citizens are simply not interested in adding the Ivorian to their books.
Drogba is currently in advanced talks with Chelsea over a return to Stamford Bridge and the thought of the dream reunion being scuppered by one of their title rivals did not please the majority of our Stamford Bridge faithful.
This is also because they are not being linked with any other forwards at the minute and know full well that one needs to be signed this summer to aid new signing Diego Costa.
City meanwhile are considering a swoop for another forward after seeing Alvaro Negredo sidelined for the first third of the season – yet it seems whoever that player is, it will not be Drogba.
Chelsea fans. Are you pleased about this news? Surely Drogba is on his way back to the Bridge? Let us know your thoughts below.
