The veteran striker played his last game for the Blues on Sunday and says that his next football adventure could land him in the USA.
Drogba said he was bombarded with calls in the changing rooms at Stamford Bridge following his side’s 3-1 win over Sunderland, but admitted he wouldn’t stay in the Premier League as he could not play for any side other than Chelsea.
The Ivorian has been heavily linked with a move to start-up Major League Soccer side New York City, possibly linking up with former Blues teammate Frank Lampard.
“There are some really fantastic teams in the Premier League but my love for this club. I can’t share it with another English team,” Drogba is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“Since I put the news I am leaving Chelsea on social media, I was in the dressing-room and I was receiving some calls from teams which is really unusual.
“It showed that maybe I can still bring something to a team. Of course I’m interested in the USA. Now I’m going to have a few days and weeks to think about what is good for me next but all I want is to play.”
Drogba rejoined Chelsea last summer after stints with Shanghai Shenhua and Galatasaray, signing a one-year deal with the club.
He will go down as one of the best players to have ever played for the Blues after winning four Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League in his time at Stamford Bridge.
