Olympique Marseille will attempt to prise Didier Drogba away from Chelsea in the summer, according to French sources.
Chelsea bought Drogba for £24million from Marseille in 2004 and he has since been an incredible success at Stamford Bridge.

There were rumours that Marseille bid for the Ivorian in the summer, but they were later denied by Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.

So could Didier Drogba be tempted into a move back to the Stade Velodrome? If anyone had made such a suggestion six weeks ago then they would have been laughed at in the face very heartily but perhaps Chelsea’s recent slump in form and the axing of much loved assistant Ray Wilkins, would leave the Ivorian international to consider his future.

At 32 Drogba is clearly in the final stages of his illustrious career and the prolific marksman has made it clear he would love to finish his career back at Marseille so maybe he could be persuaded to make a move back to France in the summer? Didier Deschamps will try his hardest to make such a dream move come true.
