Didier Drogba's camp are baffled by Chelsea allowing him to rundown his contract. The Daily Mail says Drogba will be launching the sale of Chelsea's 2012-13 home kit by putting his signature on replica jerseys costing £68.95 for Drogba 11, plus Barclays Premier League badge, despite his future at Stamford Bridge being so unclear.

There is amazement within the Drogba camp that Chelsea have allowed him to run down his current agreement so that he can leave on a free transfer when his performances since Roberto Di Matteo took charge prove he is still one of the best forwards in world football.
