Stamford Bridge attacker wanted Stateside.
Chicago Fire are interested in signing Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, according to the MLS club’s head coach Frank Klopas.
Drobga, who had been targeted by Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua last month, has yet to sign a contract extension at Stamford Bridge, amid reports he is unhappy at not being offered more an a one-year deal.
This summer may well be a good time for the Ivory Coast veteran to consider a move to the MLS where a new challenge may appeal to the Chelsea man. Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is clearly planning for the future and with Juan Mata, Fernando Torres, Daniel Sturridge and Romelu Lukaku to call upon it seems unlikely the West London side will offer Drogba a longer deal.
The 33 year old Chelsea man has had an up and down season that has included spells on the bench and out injured as well as good patches of form but all in all Villas-Boas may feel that the time is right to move on and allow Didier Drogba to leave for the US on a free at the end of the season.
Klopas has ruled out a possible move for Drogba’s former Chelsea team-mate Michael Ballack.
