Chelsea legend Drogba on move from Shanghai Shenhua

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is being linked with a move away from Shanghai Shenhua.

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is being linked with a move away from Shanghai Shenhua.

But Drogba is not a transfer target for Chinese Super League champions Guangzhou Evergrande, coach Marcello Lippi has said.

"I know nothing about Didier Drogba's move," Lippi said. "I have never contacted him myself or via anybody since I took charge of Guangzhou."

According to Chinese media speculation, Lippi has been monitoring Drogba, whose future at Shanghai was thrown into doubt recently due an equity stake row among shareholders.

The China Daily claimed Shenhua chairman Zhu Jun had blogged: "Somebody finally came to make a bid (for Drogba)."
