Inter not drawn over Drogba

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan sporting director Marco Branca has not ruled out a summer move for Didier Drogba after allowing Ricardo Quaresma to join Chelsea on loan.

Branca insists the club's transfer targets have yet to be identified but admitted Inter would like to boost their squad with the arrival of two players at most.

Chelsea star Drogba has been consistently liked with a move to rejoin former Blues boss Jose Mourinho in Serie A but Branca added: "Drogba? At the moment we don't have clear objectives, we know that most probably we will need to buy one or two new players next season, but only of the highest quality."

Drogba has struggled to find his best form during a season hampered by injury and suspension.

The Ivorian was recently axed from the first-team squad by coach Luiz Felipe Scolari after a number of sub-standard performances.

Quaresma meanwhile, has endured an unhappy time in Italy since his £20million move from Porto last year.

If he is a success at Stamford Bridge there is every chance Scolari would want to make the switch a permanent one next summer.

"Chelsea strongly wanted Quaresma, there was no hidden agenda, we only wanted to give him a chance to play more and grow, then next year we will decide what to do with him," said Branca.
