Following the announcement that he will be leaving Chelsea for the second time, DidieDrogba caught in a speculation about where the striker might finish his playing days in the next season. One destination that would certainly make some sense is Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille. That was the time when Drogba played before Jose Mourinho made his move for the Ivorian.
Drogba, 37, announced he will leave Chelsea this summer following last weekend’s final Premier League game of the season. He is intended to search for more playing time after making just eight top-flight starts last term. The 23-year-old central midfielder started 20 times in the league, making 28 appearances in total, but will not return to the Bundesliga club next season. He has only made 22 appearances for Chelsea since joining in 2011, but signed a new four-year deal in 2014.
The Ivorian showed a massive impact at the StadeVelodrome during the 2003-2004 season. At the time he scored 18 Ligue 1 goals and another nine in Europe as Marseille reached the UEFA Cup final, in his only year at the club. Since his move to Chelsea, Marseille fans have dreamed of a return.
After leaving Marseille, Drogba won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League in eight years at Stamford Bridge. He then played in China and for Turkish club Galatasaray before returning to Chelsea lats summer and lifting up another Premier League trophy.
On Thursday (28/5) Drogba’a agent gave several comments about the possibility, though he noted that there has not been any contact from Drogba’s former club yet. “Is Didier ready to return to Marseille? I stand by his words, he always kept the door open. Opportunities have already shown in the past, but it had not been possible for various reasons,” he said. The agent also added that there have been a lot of clubs that told them of their interest, and the agent will need time for reflection.
Marseille are to allow Andre-Pierre Gignac and Andre Ayew to leave the club when their contracts expired next month. The club are keen to strengthen following a disappointing season whcih saw them finish fourth in Ligue 1, 14 points behind champions Paris Saint-Germain.
While concerning the fact that Marseille is being forced to sell heavily this summer due to its financial issues, it is quite hard to believe that they could actually afford the Ivorian with specific sort of wages.
