New Shanghai Shenhua manager Sergio Batista insists the club is still trying to sign Chelsea star Didier Drogba.

The Ivory Coast striker is set to depart the West London club this summer and Batista, who was unveiled today, says trying to get the Champions League hero to China is a work in progress.

"The people from the club are doing the best things to get Drogba here," said the Argentine.

"I think every coach in the world wants to get Drogba on the team and I hope everything is okay."
