With the Ivorian's contract set to expire this summer, we ask whether it's time to move on from the Blues in the wake of their stunning Champions League victory over Bayern Munich

POLL

The future of Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is still up in the air after conflicting reports emerged in the wake of his side’s dramatic Champions League triumph last Saturday.

At first, it appeared Drogba was set to confirm his exit from Stamford Bridge following the expiration of his contract this summer.

"We [Drogba and his Chelsea team-mates] will not be together next season," he was quoted as saying in France Football magazine.

"As I have decided to leave, I wanted to tell them to their faces. They made me break down. I found it hard to admit that it was finished with me and the club."

However, the club has since moved to discredit the quotes' authenticity and chief executive Ron Gourlay has also insisted talks are still ongoing with the Ivory Coast international.
STAYING PUT?
7/4 Didier Drogba is 7/4 with Paddy Power to still be at Chelsea on the first day of next season.


Since joining from Marseille in 2004, the 34-year old striker has made over 200 appearances for the club, netting 100 times.

He has been widely linked with a move to Shanghai Shenhua, managed by former team-mate Nicolas Anelka, on a £250,000-per-week deal.
