DROGBA: "Everybody knows what I feel about Chelsea!"

This morning we have woken up with the news that Didier Drogba is ready to put pen to paper on a years extension to his contract at Chelsea taking him to the summer of 2013.

After a summer of speculation surrounding his future linking him with moves away from the club it seems as though AVB and the Chelsea hierarchy feel that Drogba still has a very important part to play this season.

Drogba said:
"We've started talking and it's very interesting. Everybody knows what I feel about Chelsea and what I want. I will definitely be here next season. I said a few years ago that I will be here until the end of my contract, and I am here. Now I need to keep playing well here and giving my best, like I always try to do. This will be my eighth season at this club and it means a lot for any striker to stay that long at Chelsea.

I'm 33, I'm the oldest player and, even if that feels strange, I'm not worried. If I deserve to play then I will play. If I'm not good then I won't. It's good for the team to have some competition. It will push the team forward and get the best out of us. For me, it's not a problem to play with Fernando or without him. The most important thing is winning games together as a team. Our goal is to win the trophies we didn't win last season. We need to do that for the club.

The whole Drogba situation has caused a whole difference of opinion between us Chelsea fans. I will be honest, we all look at his age and think back to the likes of Ballack who left because we are under the impression that the club more or less has an a ceiling on the age of a player in the squad.

Drogba is very different however and is still fit as a fiddle and can still mix it with the best of them. As for doing it for another two years we will have to wait and see, but it seems as though AVB realises that he needs to build on the current squad we have and Drogba is a huge part of it.

Ideally, in order for Drogba to play alongside Fernando Torres, I would play Drogba off of Torres with Torres through the middle as we all know how effective Drogba can be.

I have to say to people that are wondering why we are looking to keep hold of Drogba until he is 35, if he was put up for sale now just think of the clubs that would be in for him and wanting to sign him. I am not talking about small clubs offering him a chance to wind his career down but some of the biggest clubs in the world so his value to Chelsea and what he has to offer us is still important.

Like the rest of you and the media, we all know that Carlo failed to get Drogba and Torres to click together, we are waiting to see if AVB can manage it this year and if he can it will be an amazing combination.

So what do you think about Drogba's contract extension? Do you agree with it?
