Italian daily Corriere dello Sport claims that Drogba has told close friends that he will be heading to Inter Milan.

The Ivorian's long-term Chelsea future has been up-in-the-air ever since Jose Mourinho departed Stamford Bridge earlier this season.

He has been quoted as saying he wanted to leave, only to insist he was happy in West London and he intended on seeing out his current deal - which runs to 2012.

But now again his future is being called into question with Internazionale seemingly heading the queue for his services, although the likes of Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid are all liable bidders should Chelsea decide to let Drogba leave.
