Anzhi to lure Drogba with £10m-a-year

Didier Drogba is to be tempted by a mega-money contract offer from Anzhi Makhachkala, according to reports.


Talksport are reporting that the newly rich Russian side are willing to offer the Chelsea striker an incredible £10million a year.


Contract negotiations between Drogba and the Stamford Bridge club are stalling due to the player’s desire for a two-year deal.


Roman Abramovich and club officials are reluctant to offer anything more than a one-year extension.


In light of this, the Ivory Coast captain is said to be reviewing his options and Anzhi are ready to lure him east with a whopping offer.


Drogba’s agent previously admitted the player will go to the highest bidder once his contract at Chelsea expires.


It would be difficult for another club to match the Russian offer, if the reported numbers are accurate.


Anzhi finished seventh in the Russian Football Championship last season and are hoping to go on a spending spree to spur them to success next year.


They have already lured former Barcelona star Samuel Eto’o and were reported to have secured the deal by offering the Cameroonian a salary of £350,000-per-week.


Should Drogba sign for Anzhi, he would join the likes of Roberto Carlos and former Chelsea team-mate Yuir Zhirkov.
