ESPN have certainly captured the attention of our regulars here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Didier Drogba will be playing for Montreal Impact in the MLS.
The forward of course left the Blues at the end of the season, winning a fourth Premier League title in his two spells at the club, and both Inter Milan and Chicago Fire in the MLS had been linked with the Ivorian, but it seems Montreal is where his future lies, with the club claiming that Chicago Fire will be compensated for the fact that the player is no longer joining them.
Our regulars note that Drogba will probably still have enough about him to make an impact in the MLS, and there are an increasing amount of players who are making their way over to America these days.
A plethora of Chelsea supporting punters over by the bar in the Transfer Tavern feel that it will be a sad day when Drogba departs, but all of them agree that he is simply past his best nowadays!
