Didier Drogba is sticking with Chelsea for next season.

Drogba's statement in an interview this week that he would like one day to play in Italy or Spain has alerted AC Milan. The European champions are seeking a top-class replacement for Alberto Gilardino, who is seeking a move away from San Siro.

However, the Guardian says Drogba has told friends he would turn down all offers to leave Chelsea this summer.
