thumbnail Hello,

Ivorian talisman has been linked with a Stamford Bridge exit, and with MLS lurking in the background, a move across the Atlantic could yet materalise

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is pondering a move to join the likes of David Beckham and Thierry Henry in America next season, according to The News of the World.

The 33-year-old will evaluate his options at the end of this season, and it is beginning to look likely that a move across the Atlantic will materialise, with reports claiming that the Ivorian has emerged as a top target for MLS directors.

Chelsea's £50m January signing Fernando Torres has yet to spark his goalscoring career at Stamford Bridge, but his arrival has cast doubts over the future of Drogba, who had been seeking a two-year extension to his current deal with the Blues.

Drogba has already held informal talks with former Arsenal and Barcelona talisman Thierry Henry, who provided quality feedback following his experience with the New York Red Bulls.

The prospect of joining up with other legends such as the Cosmos’ Director of Soccer Eric Cantona certainly looks appealing, and may persuade Drogba to pack his bags and move Stateside.

However, the MLS may have to compete with the lure of the past as Drogba has also been linked with a return to his former club Marseille, and could be used as leverage in a deal to secure the services of winger Loic Remy.
