Marcello Lippi has told AC Milan to sign Shanghai Shenhua striker Didier Drogba.
“He played against my Guangzhou Evergrande recently and is still a beast. He really makes the difference on the field.
“Drogba would be a precious addition to the squad both in Serie A and the Champions League. In technical terms, he’d form a great partnership with El Shaarawy.”
However, as with the earlier interest from Juventus, Lippi does see one rather large obstacle.
“He didn’t choose to go to China by following his heart or making a footballing decision. It was purely for the money, as he earns €1m per month. Do you think he’d agree to halve his wages to come and play in Italy? I have my doubts.”
