After speculation about his future it seems that Didier Drogba will be leaving Chelsea after his contract expires at the club. There have been plenty of rumours of different clubs interested in his services as it appeared blatantly obvious that at 33, the club were never going to offer him the two year contract he wants.

Chelsea in recent time, have stood firm on player contract renewals if the players are of a certain age. Michael Ballack was one player who left the club after again only being offered a one year extension and wanting longer.

Today as featured here, Drogba's agent Thierno Seyd said:
"Didier has had the offer of a one-year extension from Chelsea. That does not suit us. We know what we want, where we want to go and what offers we have.

AC Milan came in for Didier on loan with an option to buy but I said 'No' straight away. Their offer did not interest us.

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 thirties you have to go to a club where you can be certain you'll be able to pay your bills.

LA Galaxy are a possibility among many others. He has been linked with Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia, as they pay well. But neither Didier nor I have had an offer from them."
Deep down I always thought this would be the case and maybe, the emergence of Danny Sturridge this season has forced Chelsea's hand into letting Drogba go. The club will be £120,000 per week better off.

Didier Drogba will go down in history as a Chelsea legend and an integral part of our history and Didier Drogba still has a part to play at this club for the remainder of the season as long as he is up for it, wants to play and give it his all. I cannot stand another performance like Marseille away last season.

Expect a barrage of rumour and speculation now that will continue to run until the window closes at the end of January. The question remains will and should Chelsea cash in and get as much as they can for him in January?
