Al Wasl’s Maradona cools talk of Chelsea great Drogba – He’ll sign with Shanghai

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

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."
