Shanghai Shenhua have confirmed plans to land Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

A deal for Nicolas Anelka has already been announced by both clubs.

General manager Li Ming told Chinese media last week: "Money is not the problem.

"Drogba is still one of the most popular soccer stars in the world, though he will be 34 years old.

"We have talked a lot with Drogba's agent and promised to provide him with a three-year contract."
