Marseilles keen to bring back Drogba
Wednesday 09 February 2011
Marseilles are expected to make another attempt to sign their former striker Didier Drogba from Chelsea in the summer, offering the 32-year-old a chance to end his career at the club where he is idolised by the supporters.
Drogba's future at Chelsea has been thrown into doubt with the spectacular £50m signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool late in the evening on the final day of the January transfer window.
Many observers believe it is unlikely Drogba and Torres will be able to form a productive partnership, as both seem to perform best when used as a lone striker with support from the flanks.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
