Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua are confident of securing a move for Didier Drogba, who on Tuesday confirmed he was leaving Chelsea.

The 34-year-old helped the Blues win the Champions League in Munich to bring the curtain down on a trophy-laden spell in west London.

Ivory Coast international Drogba - signed from Marseille for £24million in 2004 - is now expected to join up with former Blues team-mate Nicolas Anelka at the Chinese Super League club on what would be a lucrative free transfer.
