Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is set to return to the club this summer on a one-year deal, as he prepares for a reunion with Jose Mourinho according to L’Equipe. While the French paper report the deal is set to be announced early next week.
Drogba’s contract with Galatasaray expires this summer and the Turkish club have yet to renew his deal. Chelsea were exploring the chance of bringing Drogba back to the club with a chance to play under Jose Mourinho again and it seems to have come off. The 36-year-old is technically a free agent and the Blues were keen to reignite their close affiliation with the striker.
Drogba will have the option to become part of the coaching staff when he hangs up his boots at the club, which could appeal to the Ivory Coast star.
Drogba won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League during his time at Chelsea.
The Ivory Coast international scored the winning goal in his final game for Chelsea in the Champions League final, with his penalty shoot-out strike earning the clubs first European triumph.
Didier Drogba had three attempts at the World Cup, with all of his shots hitting the target.
