Drogba has 12 months remaining on his Galatasaray contract and Mourinho has left the door open for him to return to Chelsea.
“Is Didier a very important player in Chelsea’s history? Yes,” said Mourinho. “Will Didier always be in the memory of the Chelsea fans, Chelsea board, Chelsea owner, Chelsea players and Chelsea kids growing up? Yes.
“Is it normal that Didier will be in the future connected with Chelsea again? I think yes. How? I don’t know. That’s a global question for the club. I am nobody, I am just the manager.”
