The agent of departing Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hinted that the striker could be set to make a dramatic return to former club Marseille this summer, according to the Daily Star.
Drogba returned to Stamford Bridge last summer to play his part (albeit slightly diminished) in helping the club win their first Premier League title in five years, but is out of contract at the end of the month.
Several clubs are reported to be interested in helping him prolong his career, including former side Marseille.
The 37-year-old enjoyed a fantastic send off last week, when he was carried from the pitch by his Chelsea teammates, and now could join up with another former club that helped him make his name in the game.
Drogba’s agent, Theirno Seydi, has confirmed that he the Ivorian ‘has left the door open’ for a move to the south coast club.
“Drogba back to OM? Opportunities have already [been] presented in the past, but it had not been possible for various reasons,” Seydi told La Provence.
“According to his words, the door is always left open. Today he could give his experience to the team, have more playing time and take that leadership role in the dressing room, which he already had at Chelsea.
“But [Drogba] does not interest the president [Vincent Labrune].
“Since Sunday, many clubs have contacted us to say they are interested in the player. We have to take some time out to think. Marseille are not in this project because they appear not to be interested in Drogba.”
