Thierry Henry is urging Didier Drogba to shelve plans of a return to Chelsea.

The Galatasaray striker is wanted back at Chelsea in a coaching role next season.

But Henry wants Drogba to join him at New York Red Bulls.

The Daily Star says the offer of a lucrative move to the USA to share a pitch with Henry in New York will be hard to resist.

Henry also wants to bring his former Arsenal teammate Ashley Cole, out of contract at Chelsea at the end of this campaign, to New York - but it is the signing of Drogba which would really excite MLS crowds.
