Shanghai Shenhua’s Didier Drogba has requested permission to leave China on loan. Although Chelsea and Juventus want him, Marseille are also monitoring the situation and may look to pounce.
Olympique Marseille’s chairman Labrune yesterday told RMC Radio that a Drogba moving back to OM would be ‘impossible’. After the astonishing sacking of Roberto Di Matteo by Chelsea earlier today, the Champions League holders’ amount of interest in the Ivory Coast international is now unclear.
The Serie A champions Juventus have also put their name in the hat, having started this season’s campaign without much panache in front of goal.
