Didier Drogba Looks Set to Return to Chelsea For One Final Season

Despite Jose Mourinho saying that Chelsea’s transfer window was over, it appears likely that Didier Drogba will return to Stamford Bridge for one final season before he retires as a footballer and goes into coaching.

Drogba is currently a free agent after being released by Galatasaray. French newspaper L’Equipe reports that Drogba, 36, is likely to fill the squad place left vacant by Demba Ba, who has been transferred to Besiktas.

It’s reported that Mourinho values Drogba’s charisma and how the Ivorian can be a positive influence in the dressing room.

Drogba could sign for Chelsea as early as next week.

During the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Drogba played a similar role for Ivory Coast where he came on to the pitch as an impact substitute, often in the second half, to give his team a physical presence and clinical shot taker.

What’s your opinion about Drogba returning to Chelsea? Are you glad or disappointed? And do you think he is still capable of making an impact for Chelsea? Or do you feel the Blues would be better off signing a younger player who can add more of a spark off the bench? Let us know in the comments section below.

    1. Will Chelsea even keep Rom around with three other strikers (or two-and-a-half, considering one is Torres)? Could pave the way for a permanent move to Everton.

  1. drogba will still be of positive impact especially in dressing room even if he does not score many goals as its expected.

  2. It always baffles me the choices make at forward? You had Sturridge who turned out to be a 15 plus goal scorer as well as Lukaku who most likely will be sold, but spend the likes of 50 mill for Torres and 32 mill for Costa? Not saying Costa won’t come good, but why sell when you have proven consistent goal scorers already
