Agent: Drogba will go where the money is
Didier Drogba looks certain for a move away from Stamford Bridge after turning down a chance to stay in west London. The powerful 33-year-old frontman's £120,000-a-week contract runs out after the current campaign and he has rejected Chelsea's offer of an extra 12 months. The Ivorian is now ready to walk away from the Blues as a free agent. Drogba's agent Thierno Seydi, based in Senegal, also confirmed that Italian giants AC Milan made an offer which was eventually rebuffed. He said yesterday, "Didier has had the offer of a one-year extension from Chelsea. That does not suit us. We know what we want, where we want to go and what offers we have. AC Milan came in for Didier on loan with an option to buy but I said 'No' straight away. Their offer did not interest us. At Didier's age, he has nothing left to prove as a player. He will go where he is offered the most money. It could be the United States, Russia, Qatar or somewhere else in Asia."
