Chelsea to offer Drogba player-coach deal

Published 7 Comments

Chelsea are set to offer former striker Didier Drogba a route back to the club this summer, according to The Metro

If reports from Le Sport 10 are to be believed, Blues boss Jose Mourinho is ready to offer the Ivorian forward a one year playing deal followed by a three year coaching deal with the club.

This would mean Drogba, who played his final game for the club in the Champions League final of 2012, would part of the Chelsea setup for the next four years

Drogba is regarded as a club legend at Chelsea, and is reportedly considering his future at Turkish outfit Galatasaray. 

With Drogba possibly being offered a one year playing deal at Stamford Bridge, the forward could act as a short term answer to Mourinho's striker problems. 

The likes of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o have all proved inconsistent throughout the campaign, and it appears that a striker signing is a priority for 'The Special One'. 

Drogba may well be 36-years-old, but most Chelsea fans would be glad to see him back at the Bridge before the start of the 2014/15 campaign.

What do you think Blues fans? Should Drogba return? Have your say below!
