Chelsea management prepared to sell Drogba in January

Chelsea are becoming increasingly prepared to lose star striker Didier Drogba.

The Sunday Mirror says he looks poised to walk away from Chelsea as a free agent in the summer after contract ­negotiations broke down.

The Ivory Coast striker, who joined Chelsea from Marseille for £24million in 2004, has ­rejected a one-year extension and is ­demanding two more years.

Chelsea, with an abundance of striking options, are not prepared to be held to ransom. The stand-off has reached such a level that the Blues have not ruled out selling the powerful front man in January.
