News has sprang of Drogba’s refusal to sign a one year extension for the Blues, with his agent, Thierno Seydi, stating that the Ivorian powerhouse will move ‘where ever offers the most money’. Having snubbed an extension with the Blue’s and also a loan move to AC Milan, it seems Drogba is bound for a big money move, but to where?
Linked with Russia, United States and Asian clubs alike, it’s almost a certainty Drogba’s future lies with money rather than the prospects of success, in which his agent has again jumped to ‘defend’ – stating, ‘At Didier’s age, he has nothing left to prove as a player. He will go where he is offered the most money. It could be the United States, Russia, Qatar or somewhere else in Asia. Once you are well into your 30s you have to go to a club where you can be certain you’ll be able to pay your bills’.
In my opinion, Drogba has always been a great servant for the West London club, and although we can all take the moral high ground, and state ‘it’s not about money’, if put in the same situation, and offered an increase on wages, as well as the chance to live in another county, such as the US, temptation would greet us all!
If and when the Drog is due to move on, i’m sure he will give his all until the final whistle of his final game.
Will you miss him? and who would be a suitable replacement?
Let us know your thoughts!
