Real Madrid Pondering Bid For Chelsea Striker Didier Drogba - Report

Real Madrid will test Chelsea’s resolve with an offer for striker Didier Drogba before the end of the current transfer window, according to reports.

The Sunday Mirror remarks that the Ivorian is rumoured to be heading for the Stamford Bridge exit door in the summer, as the London side plan a complete revamp of their ageing squad.

The 32-year-old Drogba has struggled to find the net in recent matches, and Los Blancos coach Jose Mourinho is preparing a bid to take him to the Santiago Bernabeu for the second half of the season.

Madrid have previously been linked with a loan move for Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor and were thought to be close to concluding a deal for Hamburg striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, with the Dutchman keen on making a triumphant return to his former club.

Drogba remains an option, however, with Mourinho the man under whom the striker first played at Chelsea, although a major stumbling block will be his inability to play for the capital club in the Champions League due to his participation with the Blues.
