He is the man who scored the winning penalty on arguably one of the clubs greatest nights when we lifted the UEFA Champions League against Bayern Munich, but Didier Drogba decided to leave us only a few weeks after to ply his trade out in China with Shanghai Shenhua.
The 34-year-old thought it would be a great way to end the love affair with his beloved blues and maybe give him one more big pay check before he hangs up his boots.
However, ge could be heading back to Europe for a little while, because the striker is looking to maintain his fitness after his current clubs season has finished and his agent is asking FIFA for special dispensation to allow the big man to go out on loan now for a short period of time, after it came out that Chelsea and Marseille were interested in loaning him for a short while.
His agent told L’Equipe: “It would be an exceptional measure, but considering what he has brought to African football we can ask for it.
“Considering what he represents and he has achieved, FIFA could study that case.”
Now Drogba already plans on training with the blues after his clubs season is over, so the idea of him coming back for a few months and putting on a blues shirt again is not actually as farfetched as you may think.
