Chelsea legend who scored 157 goals for the Blues targeted by Brazilian outfit Corinthians on a free transfer

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been offered a contract by Brazilian side Corinthians, according to Goal.

Drogba wrote his name into Premier League folklore during his time at Stamford Bridge. The Ivorian made 341 appearances for the Blues in total, scoring 157 goals.

He also lifted 14 pieces of silverware in a Chelsea shirt. That includes four Premier League titles, and the Champions League – which he famously won almost single-handedly, sinking Bayern with a bullet header and a decisive penalty.

Up until the end of the 2016 MLS season, he was playing, and scoring, for Montreal Impact. However, the 38-year-old is now without a club and available on a free transfer.

As per Goal, Corinthians are interested in adding the veteran striker to their forward line. The website also claims that Drogba is open to taking on a new challenge in Brazil; despite being in the swansong of his career.

It doesn’t appear as though football will be waving goodbye to Drogba anytime soon.
