Chelsea icon Drogba in MLS talks

Didier Drogba has confirmed that he is in discussions with a Major League Soccer club.

The 37-year-old Ivory Coast striker is a free agent after leaving Chelsea at the end of last season and has been linked with a number of clubs since.

The latest side to sow interest is Inter Milan but Drogba has revealed that his next move is likely to be to North America rather than Italy.

"I'm not aware of that situation (with Inter)," Drogba told FCInter1908.

"Inter are a great club, and certainly if they were to contact me I'd gladly listen to their offer, but I'm currently in talks with an MLS club.

"Inter could be an option if they really are interested in me."

Reports suggest that Drogba has been in talks with Chicago Fire.
