The Ivorian has been linked with a move back to Chelsea this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to in a quality striker.
Jose Mourinho believes that Didier Drogba will return to Chelsea one day, saying that the Ivorian is a important figure in the clubs history, Goal.com reports.
Drogba has been linked with a move back to Stamford Bridge this summer, with Jose Mourinho on the look out for a top class striker to lead the line at the Blues next season.
The Ivorian spent eight highly successful seasons at Chelsea, winning three Premier League titles and also winning the Champions League during his final appearances for the club.
Drogba is now playing for Turkish club Galatasaray but Mourinho believes that the striker will be back at Stamford Bridge in some capacity in the future.
“He is a player and he is a winner and he enjoys his game and I almost had a heart attack because of him,” Mourinho told the Telegraph.
“Let him enjoy a good couple of years of football but, after that, he is loved in this club by everyone and that’s very, very normal. I think one day he will have a Chelsea future.”
Mourinho is desperate to sign a top quality striker this summer, with Wayne Rooney thought to be his main transfer target.
However, if Chelsea do miss out on Rooney, Mourinho may consider bringing Drogba back to the club as a short term solution to the Blues problems up-front.
