Big-spending Malaga are chasing Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Big-spending Malaga are chasing Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

The Daily Star Sunday says the Blues hitman, 33, is being tracked by coach Manuel Pellegrini as he hunts for a high-profile strike partner for Ruud van Nistelrooy, 34.

Malaga may have only finished mid-table last term but they are now backed by rich Qatar Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani.

And he is throwing money at the team in a bid to rival La Liga powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Just this week he paid £10million to land Lyon schemer Jeremy Toulalan, 27, on big wages.

And he is keen on another coup by snapping up Drogba from Chelsea with the promise of a big pay day as he comes to the back end of his career.
