Didier Drogba closing in on Juventus move

Published Add your comment

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will reject the chance to seal a return to Stamford Bridge this summer by signing for Serie A giants Juventus, reports the Daily Star.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho had offered Drogba the chance to seal a move back to west London as a player/coach, however the Ivorian international is keen on extending his playing days rather than turn his attention to the management side of the game.

Drogba confirmed earlier this week that he was going to leave Turkish outfit Galatasaray at the end of the season after spending 18 months at the Turk Telekom Arena.

Juventus would provide Drogba with the perfect platform to play at the highest stage of European football once again.

The 36-year-old, who played at Stamford Bridge for eight season, would also be able to play alongside some of the world's top players such as Carlos Tevez, Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal.

Drogba will reportedly be handed a one-year deal by Juventus boss Antonio Conte.
