Shanghai Shenhua are convinced they'll land Chelsea icon Didier Drogba.

Drogba, 34 yesterday, is out of contract at Chelsea this summer and no agreement has been reached to extend his stay.

And Shanghai Shenhua are so confident of landing the Ivory Coast star, they have reserved the number 11 shirt for him.

Club owner and chairman Zhu Jun said: "During negotiations, Drogba said that he liked the number 11 - so to show the club's sincerity, we reserved it for him."
