Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has ruled out an emotional return to Chelsea this summer, agreeing a deal with Juventus instead.

The Daily Express cite reports in Italy when claiming that the Ivorian international striker has agreed a two-year contract with the 36-year-old - who left the Blues back in 2012.

Considering return

Jose Mourinho had been considering whether to bring the player back to Stamford Bridge, the paper claims, but the chance of landing Drogba in a player/coach role now appears to be gone.

The striker moved to west London back in 2004, with Mourinho spending big to bring the player to the King’s Road from Marseille.

He would go on to become a huge hit with the Chelsea fans after a few initial doubts, and was a prolific goalscorer when it mattered at Stamford Bridge.

During his time with the Blues, Drogba won three Premier Leagues, five FA Cups and three League Cups, but his crowning moment came in the 2012 Champions League final.

Champions League win

After scoring a late equaliser, he went on to win the trophy for the first time in both his own career and the history of Chelsea, notching the vital penalty in a shootout in Munich. It was his last kick for the club.

That would now appear to be almost certainly the case moving forward, as it’s unlikely the Blues would take on Drogba as a player as a 38-year-old in 2016.

However, Chelsea fans will still hold out hope that he returns to the club in some capacity in the future.
