Chelsea are reportedly expecting Didier Drogba to confirm in the coming weeks that he will leave the club on a free transfer and sign for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

The 34-year-old is out of contract this summer and has been linked with a move to Shanghai for a number of months.

According to the Daily Mail, Drogba is ready to quit Chelsea and will sign a contract with £250,000-a-week net with Shanghai, where he will link-up with former Blues teammate Nicolas Anelka.

Should Drogba depart Stamford Bridge this summer, it will mean that his last touch for the club secured the Champions League for the first time in Chelsea's history.

The Ivorian striker took the decisive penalty in the shootout against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, as Chelsea defied the odds to beat their Bavarian opponents on their home patch.

Drogba will leave Chelsea with a record of 156 goals in 337 games, while he departs a European Cup winner and with three Premier League medals.
