The Ivorian is adamant the door has always been open to returning to his old club.
Now with Phoenix Rising, Drogba told RMC: "What I am going to say about Marseille is sensitive and will be reported. Too bad. I would have liked to come back to Marseille. I've always said it.
"Now, was I part of the project when I wanted to come back? I do not know. A question of money? No never. There is a minimum to respect anyway. We never managed to find common ground.
"It's a shame."
