Drogba set for Mourinho reunion

Chelsea have reportedly started discussions with former striker Didier Drogba to bring him back to Stamford Bridge as a player-coach next season.

It is believed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho wants to re-sign the 36-year-old as a second striker and will tempt him back to Chelsea with an offer of also gaining coaching experience at the club.

Reports claim that Drogba, who is out of contract following a stint with Turkish side Galatasaray, has a lucrative two-year contract offer on the table from Italian champions Juventus.

But the Ivorian is understood to be leaning towards returning to London to once again work under Mourinho.
