Ivory Coast international striker Didier Drogba said Sunday he was ready to sign a new contract at Chelsea.

Drogba has been in contact with new Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari and seems likely to sign a big-money deal that will see him remain at Stamford Bridge until 2012.

“I am confident talks with Chelsea will lead to a positive resolve about my future,” Drogba told the Sunday Mirror.

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon last week revealed his confidence that their big name stars, including Drogba and captain Frank Lampard, would remain at the club.

Drogba has two years remaining on his current contract but insists a move for more money is not his top priority.

“Chelsea want to speak and I am open to talk,” he said. “Things have not changed but I am a Blues player.

“Money is not the main factor and if Chelsea show they want me it is possible to accept a proposition.”

AC Milan, Barcelona and Inter Milan are all reported to be interested in signing the 30-year-old, who joined the London club four years ago.
