Didier Drogba won't be taking up offer to stay at Chelsea for another year, according to the one of his agents.

The Ivory Coast forward, who joined The Blues from Marseille in 2004 for £24 million, has won three Barclays Premier League titles, three FA Cup Cups and two League Cups, as well as netting over 100 goals during his eight year spell in west London.

However one of his agent's, Thierno Seydi, says the player has nothing to prove at Chelsea following the offer of a miserly one-year deal.

"Didier has had the offer of a one-year extension from Chelsea. That does not suit us," Seydi said.

"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.

"At Didier's age, he has nothing left to prove as a player. He will go where he is offered the most money.

"It could be the United States, Russia, Qatar or somewhere else in Asia."

Drogba has until the end of the year to agree a deal with Chelsea before rival clubs can bid for the forward, with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and former side Marseille linked with a move for the 33-year-old.

The Blues are also expected to lose Nicolas Anelka to Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua after making just six appearances for the club this season and falling behind the likes of Fernando Torres in the pecking order.
