Milan have acknowledged that they face a struggle trying to lure Didier Drogba from Chelsea.
Speaking in the wake of signing Arsenal midfielder Matthieu Flamini, Milan sporting director Ariedo Braida admitted he does not expect the Ivory Coast striker to follow in the footsteps of the French midfielder.
Speculation had suggested that Milan were to follow up the signing of Flamini with a move for Drogba.
“Drogba is a very interesting player that many clubs would want to have but he is under contract at Chelsea and I believe he will remain at Chelsea next season,” conceded Braida.
“I have to say Flamini was a player that Ancelotti really wanted and Milan is like a family, where decisions are made jointly,” he said.
“Flamini is not an unknown player. Just like Didier Drogba isn’t.
