Get ready. The all new rumour reporting article system is in full effect!
AC Milan have resurrected their interest in Didier Drogba and added him to their wish-list of strikers to sign this summer.
Chelsea are prepared to sell the forward should a significant offer come in following his behaviour after their Champions League exit to Barcelona last week. He is expected to get a sizeable ban from UEFA for the start of next season’s Champions League but will not learn of his fate for a few more weeks.
It has not put off AC Milan, who were interested in buying Drogba last year only to be scared off by an asking price of over £20million.
Milan are confident they will get him on the cheap this time. However, they are also interested in Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor and were today linked with Manchester United’s Carlos Tevez.

Carlo Ancelotti seems intent on trying to profit from other people’s misery. The three players linked in this report are all in some way doomed in their respective careers at their Premier League employers.
Didier Drogba has greatly angered Roman Abramovich with his “It’s a disgrace” antics, Emmanuel Adebayor has become the subject of much criticism from the fans after more comments relating to his desire to leave the club last summer were re-ignited by his recent claim that he was very pally with the AC owners. Carlos Tevez is loved by the Man United supporters but can’t seem to buy a break from Sir Alex and looks destined to exit Old Trafford unless the champions elect fork out the fee to sign him permanently.
The AC Milan manager is keen to freshen things up at the San Siro as he looks to build on this seasons improvements and so that he can mount a serious Champions League campaign. It is very probable that one of these three will arrive in Italy and perhaps even to AC themselves and this seems all the more likely as Alexander Pato needs a new look strike partner as Inzaghi is now 47 years old (joke)
Adebayor or Drogba to AC Milan: Very possible
Tevez to AC Milan: I think the Argentine will remain the Premier League
