Chelsea star striker’s agent talks City interest

Next Story

Didier Drogba’s agent has refuted claims the star striker is fielding offers from other clubs to agree to a possible move, with Tierno Seydhi saying the Ivory Coast international is waiting until the end of the season to continue contract talks.

"Didier Drogba has a contract until 2012 with Chelsea,” Seydhi said, as reported by

“He is settled in England and loves to play for Chelsea.”


Seydi said that talks over an extension of Drogba’s contract would occur after Chelsea completed their season.

"We are waiting until the end of the season, when we will have a chat with the Chelsea officials and see,” Seydi insisted.

Drogba had been linked to a sensational swap with Manchester City star striker Tevez, with City reportedly offering the £50 million-rated Argentinian in exchange for Drogba moving to Eastlands.

"We have not been contacted by City at the moment so we can't say anything about it,” Seydi rebuked.

The agent hinted at a level of respect for City, perhaps in the hope that they may offer big money for Drogba’s services.

"We all know they want to be a force in England and Europe,” the player agent said.
