Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure has revealed that Didier Drogba has told him he would like to play at Camp Nou.
Drogba’s future at Chelsea has been the subject of speculation since the departure of Jose Mourinho from Stamford Bridge.
Barca midfielder Toure says his Ivory Coast team-mate spoke of his desire to move to Spain while the pair were on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.
“Of course, we talked about Barcelona,” Toure told Ona FM. “Didier Drogba is a very important player in my country, but he costs a lot of money.
“He would really like to play for Barca because we have a great team and have great players.
“Drogba told me that he would like to come and play with me, but he knows that it is complicated as Eto’o, Henry and Messi are already there.”
