Shanghai Shenhua player-boss Nicolas Anelka fears they're set to miss out on former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba.

Drogba is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to join his former strike partner at the Chinese club.

But Anelka admitted: "If Drogba chooses to stay with Chelsea, it would prove that Drogba wanted to stay and Chelsea also wanted to keep him.

"If Drogba cannot come to Shanghai, then there are no regrets because the world still has many other fine players."
