PSG captain Mamadou Sakho wants Chelsea forward Didier Drogba to join him in the French capital.

 

The Stamford Bridge favourite’s contract runs out at the end of the season and he has yet to agree a new Blues deal, though there has been speculation that he may leave the club.

 

Now the newly-wealthy PSG have been linked with a move for the Ivory Coast captain and Sakho has admitted the 34-year-old would be the first name on a list of transfer targets.

 

“Honestly, it would be Drogba. I really appreciate him, thanks to his career, where he went, the rage he had to move, what he represents for Africa and his country,” he told RMC.

 

While there have been many doubts over where Drogba’s future lies, there can be none over the Ligue 1 side’s capacity to afford him one last big pay day.

 

They were bought out by Qatar Investment Authority last year and quickly exerted their new financial muscle by purchasing Argentinean attacker Javier Pastore for €43million – a French record.

 

They have also purchased a number of other players in an attempt to gain Champions league qualification next season and raise the clubs global profile.

 

This seems to be working well so far, as PSG currently sit at the top of Ligue 1 but they are only two points ahead of second placed Montpellier.
