Essien wants Drogba to stay at Chelsea

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been consistently linked with a move to either AC Milan or FC Barcelona before long. His Chelsea team mate Michael Essien is one player who doesn’t want the Ivory Coast star to leave Stamford Bridge at anytime.

Sky Sports quotes the Ghanian star telling The Daily Star that he wants Drogba to stay at the Bridge. He says:

I would much prefer Eto’o came to Chelsea. People question whether the two of them would be compatible but of course they would be. And they would form such a dangerous partnership that having them both there, Barcelona would be unstoppable.

Drogba has not exactly squashed rumours that he is on his way out of Stamford Bridge. He has been linked with Real Madrid as well but should he leave Chelsea, then the London Blues could be up a stump replacing him.
