Chelsea hope to keep hold of Didier Drogba - despite lucrative offers tempting him away.

The Mirror says the Blues' Russian ruler Roman Abramovich is fielding interest in veteran hitman Drogba personally in the absence of either a manager or director of football at the club - but his preference is to keep the long-serving star.

Turkish giants Galatasaray are interested in Drogba and will offer him a lucrative final pay-day, while Tottenham chief Harry Redknapp is also keen if the deal is right.

But the word from the top at Chelsea is that Drogba will be kept on Abramovich's orders - so the next coach will have to work out how the Ivorian and Fernando Torres can play together.
