Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has admitted Roman Abramovic will decide the fate of Didier Drogba.
The 37-year-old rejoined the Blues last summer on a free transfer from Galatasaray following an earlier eight-year spell.
But Mourinho is reportedly looking at bringing a new, younger striker to Stamford Bridge, with QPR’s Charlie Austin and Inter Milan’s Paulo Dybala touted as possible replacements for the veteran.
And the Special One has explained that Drogba’s future will be decided by club owner Abramovich.
As quoted on the Daily Express websie, he said: “I think, this is a club thing. This is a Mr Abramovich thing.
“Mr Abramovich wants him to do what he wants in the club but it’s something Mr Abramovich has to tell him. He has to decide.
“But obviously he belongs to the history of this club.”
