Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has revealed that he has an agreement to return to return to the club and has named four potential roles he could take on in the future, reports BBC Sport.
In fact, the veteran has even suggested that he could become the future manager of Chelsea but he has insisted that Jose Mourinho is giving his best to change the situation at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea currently find themselves in 15th position in the Premier League table - 14 points behind league leaders Leicester City. However, Drogba believes the players at Stamford Bridge still trust the Portuguese tactician as the club go in search of climbing the Premier League table.

While Chelsea supporters won't be feeling too optimistic about the future right now, they will be buoyed by the prospect of their beloved striker returning to the club in some capacity once again.
"I want to give back to the club which has given so much to me. I have agreed that with the club directors," the 37-year-old told BBC Africa.

"Why not manager? Why not sporting director, trainer at the academy or maybe an advising role for strikers?"
When discussing Mourinho's position in west London, Drogba went on to say: "If the club has kept him that means owner Roman Abramovich thinks that he is the right man," he said. "I think the players trust him and he is giving his best to change the situation."
Jose must get it right
It has been a huge past week for Mourinho's side. Have Chelsea finally found some momentum? Without conceding a goal in their last two outings, the Blues have secured back-to-back victories, but can't rest on their laurels over the coming weeks.
This Sunday represents yet another huge game for Chelsea. London rivals Tottenham certainly have the credentials to replace Mourinho's side in next year's Champions League competition, so the Blues can't afford to be on the wrong end of the result this weekend.
It won't be easy, of course, but Chelsea's leading players will have to be at their very best in north London if they're going to leave White Hart Lane with all three points.
