Didier Drogba: I Am Staying At Chelsea Beyond January

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has declared that he shall stay on at Stamford Bridge beyond January but has refused to confirm whether he shall play for the Blues beyond the summer.

The Ivory Coast international striker has been quoted by The Daily Mirror as saying that he never even contemplated of leaving the club in January. He said:

“I have spoken with Scolari and he knows that I want to play. I am only thinking about Chelsea at the moment.”

But shreds of suspicion on his future at Stamford Bridge remain after the former Marseille hit-man didn’t assure that he shall still remain a Blue after the summer. He remarked:

“At the end of the season I will talk to the club about my future but I have a contract with Chelsea. Not for a moment have I thought I will leave in January.”

Well, one thing’s for sure: Drogba is not moving to Inter Milan to reunite with Jose Mourinho next month. But it does seem very much likely that he would like to move on in the summer.
