Inter sporting director Marco Branca has not ruled out a summer move for Didier Drogba but denied that the decision to loan Ricardo Quaresma to Chelsea was connected to a bid for the Ivorian striker.
Inter loaned Ricardo Quaresma to the Blues after he endured a disappointing time in Italy since his £20million move from Porto last year.
“Chelsea strongly wanted Quaresma, there was no hidden agenda, we only wanted to give him a chance to play more and grow, then next year we will decide what to do with him,” said Branca.
Drogba has struggled to find his best form during a season hampered by injury and suspension, and he has been linked with a move to rejoin former Blues boss Jose Mourinho in Serie A.
However, Branca claimed such talk is mere speculation.
“Drogba? At the moment we don’t have clear objectives, we know that most probably we will need to buy one or two new players next season, but only of the highest quality,” he said.
