Drogba heads for exit door
Didier Drogba is reported to have already told his Chelsea team-mates he will not be signing a new deal and will leave Stamford Bridge.
The 34-year-old is due to fall out of contract in the summer but it was hoped he would sign another two-year deal after helping the Blues win the Champions League. Drogba again showed what a class act he is, a player that will rise to the occasion on the biggest stage, but it seems as though he has decided to go out on the biggest possible high. The Ivory Coast ace does not want to sit on the bench while Roman Abramovich builds a new look younger team and a move to China looks to be on the cards. "If I must leave it will be for an adventure that's totally different from the big leagues," he revealed. "First, because there is no question I would play for anyone else in England other than Chelsea and also, because I don't know what I could get in Spain, Italy or Germany that I don't already know. "I don't want to start an ordinary adventure elsewhere. I'm more attracted to a new life." Chelsea have not given up hope of keeping hold but it sounds as though the striker has already made up his mind.
