Ok, had to go out to get a baguette so decided to get the paper too! Here's the full article in todays l'Equipe The English tabloids are marvellous: yesterday, The Sun, the paper with the biggest circulation in Britain, attributed the following to Drogba "I want to quit Chelsea and go to another big Champions League club. AC Milan really interest me". Big surprise that when this article appeared, the striker was with the Ivory coast squad in Vittel (French town)"I never spoke with The Sun and never said that to any journalist. These quotes have been completely made up". However, DD isn't hiding his feelings: after two years at Chelsea - and 4 trophies - he admits his discomfort which was also expressed a year ago "I am not happy" he admits "In two seasons I have never been able to show my true potential. At Chelsea the top scorer is a midfielder which shows a problem somewhere. Be careful that things are clear: I am very much aware Lampard is a great player, but it isn't normal that Crespo or myself score less" Scorer of 16 goals in 05/06, the number 15 has however finished top in another table: that of assists (11). "Its without a doubt flattering, but I wasn't signed for that. I have nothing against working and to make sacrifices for the team, on the contrary. I've always done it, at Guingamp and Marseilles, but now I am really frustrated" During these last few months, Drogba has also had to put up with the debate about him in the English press, who often label him as a serial diver. He was also shocked by the boos and whistling of his own fans at Stamford Bridge during the victory over Man City, against whom he scored the 2 goals. With both Gallas, almost at AC Milan, and Drogba, could Chelsea be about to lose two major players? "It doesn't depend on me. I still have two years left on my contract, I haven't received any offers and I dont know anything about the intentions of the club with regard to my position" At the least he knows that JM is his most fervent defender "Didier is a key player at Chelsea. When we go into battle every weekend, we take with ourselves a Drogba, not poets" [NB I literally translated this last bit as I am not sure what he meant!] the Portuguese has often repeated. The latter has no intention of letting him go, aware that there aren't 5 strikers in the world capable of sacrificing themselves to his method and to defending with so much determination as soon as the ball is lost. On the otherhand, Peter Kenyon, not always on the same wavelength as JM, would rather have the intention of reforming the old partnership of Shevchenko and Crespo, with the blessing of RA, personal friend of the Ukranian. Could he be thinking about using Drogba (and Gallas too?) as part of an exchange for Shevchenko? Having snatched Drogba from OM for Ã¢â€šÂ¬33m in 2004, Chelsea would obviously not sell him off cheaply and even if they decided to let him leave, it would still be necessary to find a club capable of paying one of the top twenty earners in the Premiership (Ã¢â€šÂ¬380k a month, not including bonuses, according to the Sunday Times). In all likeliness nothing will be decided before the end of the WC, after which, in the case of a big performance with the Ivory Coast, the value of DD could once again be on the up. And then there is also a little bit about Lyon being interested which I'll summarise: And if Lyon were to have the opportunity to attract Drogba once again? Currently looking for a top striker they've already looked into the Ivory Coast striker and Pauleta amongst others... Aulas has always wanted Drogba and tried for him in 2003... Not at ease at Chelsea DD would not necessarily be against a return to France. Asked yesterday about the 4 times French Champions he admitted "Its a club who win and who I like, a structured club, but it isn't the club with which I am under contract" ... JM quickly reacted to the article in the Sun saying he couldn't go... JM took the same stance with Gallas.... Concerning Shevchenko Mourinho admitted "We'd like to have him, but he's a Milan player. He's under contract and so Milan have all the power over him as we do with Drogba"
