Didier Drogba could reportedly be reunited with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer after leaving Stamford Bridge on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old confirmed last week that he will depart west London after his contract expires next month, following eight years as a Chelsea player.

Drogba was expected to leave Chelsea for China, and join ex-teammate Nicolas Anelka by signing for Shanghai Shenhua.

However, according to the Daily Mail, the Ivorian has held talks with Real Madrid over a proposed two-year deal, which would see Drogba link-up with Mourinho once more.

The Real Madrid manager brought Drogba to Chelsea from Marseille in the summer of 2004, and the latter went on to score 157 goals in 341 games for the Blues.

Drogba's final act as a Chelsea players was to secure the Champions League for the first time in their history; netting the decisive penalty in the shootout triumph against Bayern Munich just over a week ago.
