Chelsea offer Drogba new contract despite Lukaku arrival

Chelsea's deal for Anderlecht star Romelu Lukaku will not force out Didier Drogba.

Should new manager Andre Villas-Boas decide not to loan Lukaku out, it would arguably leave Chelsea with an excess of forwards.

That would doubtless increase speculation over the futures of the likes of Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda, whose Blues careers appeared in some doubt prior to Villas-Boas' arrival.

It is understood Drogba, who finished last season strongly, is being offered a new contract to replace the one which expires next summer, says PA Sport.
