Chelsea fail to extend contract with Drogba

The British media reports Chelsea star forward Didier Drogba had turned down the club’s offer of a one-year contract extension, which makes the scenario of his joining the Russian big-spending side Anzhi more and more likely.

The 33-year-old Cote d’Ivoire striker looks increasingly set to swap Stamford Bridge for more lucrative options including possible moves to America, Russia or Asia.

The Sun quotes his agent Thierno Seydi as saying, “Didier has had the offer of a one-year extension from Chelsea. That does not suit us.

“We know what we want, where we want to go and what offers we have. AC Milan came in for Didier on loan with an option to buy, but I said ‘No’ straight away. Their offer did not interest us,” he expanded.

“At Didier’s age, he has nothing left to prove as a player. He will go where he is offered the most money,” Seydi stated, naming the United States, Russia and Qatar as his most favorable moving options.

“LA Galaxy are a possibility among many others. He has been linked with Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia, as they pay well. But neither Didier nor I have had an offer from them,” he added.
