Chelsea in shock move to bring back Drogba
Chelsea want to bring Didier Drogba back to the club on an extraordinary loan before the winter transfer window and they have started discussions aimed at making it happen, reports The Guardian. The European champions have grown so concerned at the form of Fernando Torres that they hope to secure a temporary reunion with Drogba.
The centre forward, who left Chelsea for Shanghai Shenhua in the summer, has reached the end of the Chinese Super League season and he has a window in December before he reports for the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast at the beginning of January.
Drogba has asked Fifa for special permission to move on loan from Shanghai outside of the official transfer window and the game's governing body has confirmed that it is considering the request.
