Galaxy planning to lure Drogba to MLS
LA Galaxy are planning to bring Chelsea striker Didier Drogba to the MLS as a replacement for David Beckham, reports suggest. Beckham is yet to confirmed his future with the Galaxy after helping them win the MLS Cup in his final game of his five year contract on Sunday. And there are speculations that the former Real Madrid and Manchester United midfielder, who also won titles in his last year at each of those clubs – will not renew his contract with the Galaxy as he seeks to explore new options. So with this in mind, Galaxy are apparently planning to bring Drogba in as his replacement.
However, it is believed that the Ivory Coast international is looking to extend his stay at Chelsea and would turn down any big money offer from the Galaxy. But LA will have to battle with several other big spending clubs to own Drogba, as other big spenders, AC Milan and Russian club Anzhi – are said to be interested also. Drogba has been starving for playing time since the £50m signing of Fernando Torres last January – despite the Spaniards struggles to impress. Chelsea and Drogba have been stalling on contract talks for several months now and the report claims that Galaxy are poised to lure the striker to the MLS.
