Inter Interest?

"Inter are a great club, and certainly if they were to contact me I'd gladly listen to their offer, but I'm currently in talks with an MLS club. Inter could be an option if they are really interested in me."

Drogba scored 164 goals in 381 appearances for Chelsea over a two-year spell and won every domestic honour with the Blues and was the hero in May 2012 when they beat Bayern Munich on penalties to finally land Europe's biggest prize, the Champions League.
