Chinese trio line-up for Drogba


Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande are plotting an ambitious bid for Didier Drogba which would make him the world's highest-paid player.

The Chelsea striker is out of contract at the end of the season and hasn’t been impressed by the club’s offer of a new one-year deal as he wants more security.

Tottenham and AC Milan have been waiting in the wings for some time but the 33-year-old could opt instead for a lucrative switch to the Far-East.

The Super League champions Evergande aren’t the only Chinese team interested in signing him, with Shanghai Shenhua also expressing a desire to reunite the Ivory Coast international with Nicolas Anelka.

Dalian Aerbin are very keen as well and have reportedly offered the player a three-year deal worth £30m or put another way, £200,000 a week.

However, Evergrande are ready to top even that by paying him in excess of the £350,000 a week that Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala shell out for Samuel Eto’o.
