The veteran striker has played a key role in Chelsea topping the Premier League table and scoring 21 league goals already this season.
The Ivory Coast international has been in superb creative form this season. Although his main job is goal scoring he has created nearly as many goals as he’s scored. Drogba has also contributed five Premier League goals so far.
He told Canal Plus: “When I signed a new contract at Chelsea, I always said I wanted to finish my career here.
“But I am well placed to say that anything can happen.
“When I was at Marseille I said I would finish my career there but, one week later, everything changed.”
Drogba isn’t a shrinking violet and will always voice his opinion on given subject. He has the sort of edge that most top players have and it seems he is just keeping his options open. I’m sure he would have a choice of destinations if he chooses to leave Stamford Bridge.
He has said in the past that he would like to play for Marseille again. He made his name in France with the French champions and it would probably be the most likely destination for the striker if he did ever leave Chelsea.
Lots of his peers have decided to head to the MLS for a big payday and a slightly lower standard of football. Could Drogba join the likes of David Beckham, Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez in the American top flight?
Even at 32 years –old Drogba is still one of the most threatening strikers in Europe. He has scored goals and terrorised defences all over Europe and isn’t showing much signs of his career coming to an end. The question he would have to ask himself is would he want to move before his talent starts to decline?
The Ivory Coast international will be crucial to Chelsea’s charge for silverware this season. In fact he will probably be the key figure in their challenge for Champions League and Premier League glory. Chelsea will need him to be in top form if they are going to challenge on all fronts.
I can’t see Drogba leaving Chelsea anytime soon. He still has two years left on his contract with Chelsea and I expect him to stay for the foreseeable future. However if and when he does leave I believe his best days will be well behind him.
However Didier Drogba is a fierce competitor so I’m sure whichever club sign him he’ll give his all to, even if he won’t be tearing up defences in the same fashion he has done for the last six or so years.
Will Drogba finish his career at Chelsea?
