Didier Drogba has no desire to leave Chelsea
Tuesday 01 March 2011
Chelsea striker Didier Drogba claims he has everything he dreams of at Stamford Bridge and has no desire to leave.
The 32-year-old, who joined the Blues in 2004 from Marseille, has been linked with a return to France since the £50m arrival of Fernando Torres from Liverpool in the winter transfer window.
But Drogba, who is under contract with the Barclays Premier League champions until 2012, does not harbour any ambitions to ply his trade elsewhere.
"I have everything I dream of at Chelsea," the Ivorian said on French television channel Orange Sport.
"I'm at a great club with extraordinary team-mates, in a perfect life for my family.
"A few years ago, I could say 'I dream of playing for AC Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester United'. However, today I no longer feel the need.
"I'm at one of the best clubs in the world. These desires left me long ago."
