Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is reportedly open to a move to Serie A champions Juventus, after threats of a player boycott at his new club.

The former Stamford Bridge favourite is currently with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, whom he joined after his Chelsea deal expired in the summer.

However, there have been reports of a player boycott at the club and talkSPORT claim Drogba is open to a Juventus switch.

It would be a dramatic turnaround in events for the 34-year-old, who ended his career at Chelsea by playing a match-winning role in an astonishing Champions League and FA Cup double for Roberto di Matteo’s side.

The problems supposedly stem from a shareholder dispute at the club that, according to a Bloomberg report, has meant players have not been paid and are ready to boycott their next match in protest, having already refused to train on Monday.

The talkSPORT report says Drogba has indicated to his representatives that a move to Juve would be agreeable and that Shenhua would consider a bid in the region of £8million, though the Italians believe £4million with add-ons a more realistic price.
