Didier Drogba’s 12 month contract with Chelsea is set to expire in the summer, but he has revealed that he will not be hanging up his boots at the end of the season.
His latest comments, however, are fairly ambiguous on whether his future on the pitch remains at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea – once more – were narrow winners at the weekend following a late goal from Cesc Fabregas to seal three crucial points in the title race.
Drogba led the attack with forwards Diego Costa and Loic Remy both out injured – in his first start since February.
While it was far from the Blues’ best attacking performance, the 37-year-old proved that he is still capable of performing at the highest level after completing the full 90 minutes.
After the game, Drogba revealed that he has made a decision on his future, but was tight-lipped on where he sees himself playing for the 2015/16 season, admitting that talks over a new deal at Chelsea are yet to take place.
“I have made a decision, yes,” he said. “And no, this is not my last season,” as quoted by the Guardian.
“We have to think, we have to speak, we have to know what he [Mourinho] wants.
“We have a lot of talking to do. But it’s not a problem. I don’t know if he wants to. There are people who, during their careers, earn the right and the power to make decisions and not wait for others to make decisions for them. What he did at this club for so many years puts him in a great position.”
The Ivorian has been Mourinho’s third-choice striker since returning to Stamford Bridge in the summer, but despite his limited appearances, he has scored in victories against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
