Didier Drogba’s agent claims he will put pen to paper on a new Chelsea contract if the striker does not find another club within the next 10 days.
Drogba has been linked with Barcelona, Milan and also a reunion with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at Inter.
But his agent Thierno Seydi says he may stay and sign a long-term Chelsea deal.
“Didier has given himself 10 days,” he said. “If nothing happens he’ll stay and extend his contract by two years.
“He doesn’t see himself starting training in a few days with Chelsea and then leaving to a new club.
“The reality of November is not that of today. At the time Didier was affected by departure of Jose Mourinho who he was very close to. Today, there is nothing to say that he won’t stay at Chelsea.”
New Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari claimed at his official unveiling that Drogba was still a key figure in his plans”
