Since the departure of Jose Mourinho from Stamford Bridge, Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been restless and has often voiced his desire to move out of the Bridge. Not that he is unhappy with the club or with his performance for Chelsea but he supposedly wants to move to club with greater ambition and more stability and where football is pretty to watch. Well, that is where FC Barcelona come into the picture.
For several months rumours about the Ivory Coast international joining the Fantastic Four in Camp Nou have been flying like bullets in a battlefield but Goal.com’s quote of the Barca midfielder Yaya Toure is a concrete indication that Drogba would certainly fancy playing in the sacred Barcelona shirt sooner rather tan later.
Yaya Toure and Drogba are international team mates currently on African Nations’ Cup duty and admits:
Yes, he has admitted to me that wants to come [to Barcelona],. We have spoken about Barcelona, and it all looks very good. Of course, it will be difficult, because Madrid and Milan are also after him. In my opinion, it would be very good if he were to join us, because we have lots of great players and he would be another one of them.
So is Drogba indeed heading out of the Bridge? And if so, would Catalonia and Barcelona be the best home for him? Barca themselves are going through a blue patch at the moment and Drogba might not be able to break into this talented Barca first team where even the legendary Thierry Henry is not a regular starter.
