Diego Maradona admits he would love to bring Didier Drogba to Al Wasl but admits it probably won't happen.

The former Chelsea striker is being linked with a move to the United Arab Emirates club but manager Maradona suggests that Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua will get the 34-year old because they have more pulling power.

"If we had a large budget, yes it is possible to attract someone like Drogba. But I don't think the budget in mind is available here," he told Gulfnews.com.

"I've read a lot about Drogba's future and I've come to believe he's on the verge of signing for that Chinese team who have offered him millions. I don't think we can match those figures.

"[Having] Drogba at Al Wasl is a dream and if it does come true it will be the best thing ever."
