Chelsea set to drop new contract offer for Drogba

Chelsea are set to rip up plans to offer new terms to Didier Drogba after his Champions League outburst.

The Sun says plans to offer the Ivory Coast hitman, 31, a new contract have been scrapped and he now looks certain to leave Stamford Bridge.

Drogba's current £91,000-a-week deal ends next summer but he will now be sold at the end of this season if Chelsea get a decent offer.

Chelsea officials have lost patience with Drogba - who was sent off in last year's Champions League final defeat against Manchester United - for his reaction to this latest upset.

They are deeply embarrassed by his temper tantrum, carried out in flip-flops after he ran back on to the pitch at the final whistle having been substituted with 18 minutes remaining.
