Shanghai boss optimistic over Drogba deal

Wed, 30 May 19:04:44 2012

Shanghai Shenhua remain hopeful of signing former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

The 34-year-old helped the Blues win the Champions League in Munich to bring the curtain down on a trophy-laden spell in west London.

Ivory Coast international Drogba - signed from Marseille for £24million in 2004 - is now expected to join up with former Blues team-mate Nicolas Anelka at the Chinese Super League club on what would be a lucrative free transfer.

New Shanghai Shenhua manager Sergio Batista told reporters: "The people from the club are doing the best things to get Drogba here.

"I think every coach in the world wants to get Drogba on the team and I hope everything is okay."

  1. If Sergio is not good with Anelka, let him suspend­ going for Drogba and allow him to join his former boss­ at Madrid, but if he is able to get Drogba, it will­ boost the image, market and popularity of the club.
