Drogba set for Chelsea return

Didier Drogba could make a shock return to Stamford Bridge after Chelsea reportedly opened talks with the former hitman, according to ESPN.

Drogba left the club in 2012 having spent eight years with the Blues, where he made 341 appearances and scored 157 goals, becoming endeared to the fans of the club.

And having spent two years away could now be on his way back after he confirmed he was leaving current club Galatasaray this summer, with manager Jose Mourinho wanting to bolster his attacking options.

Samuel Eto’o has left the club following his one year stay while it is expected that Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku could be on their way out of Stamford Bridge – if only on a temporary basis.

Drogba will reportedly be offered coaching responsibility alongside a place in the squad with a view to developing the role at the club.

Mourinho is still a fan of the 36-year-old and hopes that his presence amongst the squad will have a positive effect as they look to gun for the Premier league title having fell short with their challenge last season.

The Ivorian striker won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League during his stay at Chelsea and Mourinho will want to utilise this experience.
