Chelsea may face a fight to land if they intend to land Didier Drogba this summer, as reports suggest Juventus have registered an interest in him.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing Italian source TuttoMercato, is claiming that the Italian giants scouted the ageing forward last night during Galatasaray’s 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League, and are keen on the idea of landing him in the next transfer window. This comes after days of speculation which implied Chelsea would be making a move to bring Drogba back to Stamford Bridge, with Jose Mourinho even openly stating that the big Ivorian would eventually return.

The general consensus is that Drogba will move back to west London with a view to joining Mourinho’s back-room staff, however Juventus are said to be plotting to get a few more years as a player out of him, and see him as an ideal addition to their frontline. The fact that they sent emissaries to gather reports on the 36-year-old is a clear signal that they will rival the Blues, and Drogba could be tempted to opt for the Serie A due to the fact that he has never played there before.

Regardless of the transfer battle that is likely to ensure, it’s highly unlikely the all-time Ivory Coast top goal scorer will remain at Galatasaray past the summer.
