Chelsea are still in talks with former striker Didier Drogba over the player returning to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to The Daily Mail.

The report has suggested that the Blues are ready to offer the Ivorian star a player-coach role at the club for the 2014/15 season.

Drogba may well then return to the Bridge this summer, having previously departed the club after helping them to Champions League success in the 2011/12 season. The Ivorian was a major hit throughout his stint at the club, and may now be reunited with Jose Mourinho.

The 36-year-old, who starred in this summer's World Cup, is currently a free agent after his contract at Turkish giants Galatasaray came to an end after the 2013/14 season. And now it appears that the offer, which includes a coaching role with Chelsea, is one that Drogba is interested in.

Chelsea options

If the Blues can secure the signing of the experienced striker, then they will have a number of options in attack for the up coming season. Having lost the likes of Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o, Mourinho still has Spanish international Fernando Torres at his disposal. 

The club have also secured the services of Torres' international teammate Diego Costa, meaning Drogba could now rival the pair next term. Blues fans will certainly be excited by the potential return of Drogba, as the club look to secure silverware next season. 

Chelsea will be looking to improve in the 2014/15 campaign after only managing to secure a third place Premier League finish last season.
