There has been even more reports which have claimed Didier Drogba is set for a return to Chelsea, according to Evening Standard football writer Simon Johnson.
The Blues hero is a free agent after his 18-month contract in Turkey came to an end at the end of the season, and is reportedly likely to complete his move back to Stamford Bridge within the week.
As quoted on the TalkSport website, Johnson said: “Both parties are keen to finalise personal terms and Didier will arrive as a third striking option with a coaching role at the club.
“Drogba’s heart is still in Cobham, even though he’s been away at Galatasaray, his family still live there and his son is in Chelsea’s academy.
“So it’s definitely a move he’s looking to do, whether it’s the right move…I think Chelsea have looked around for someone as a third striking option to work with Costa and Torres, and have clearly decided to go with someone they know, who is tried and tested at the club.”
