With reports coming in that Didier Drogba is nearing a deal with Juventus, there is speculation that Jose Mourinho may step in in the last minute to hijack the deal.
Italian newspaper Tuttosport reports that Italian Serie A winners, Juventus, are offering £2.8m (R 48.8 million) for one year with the possiblity of another year.
Chealsea has the financial means to offer much more to the Ivorian striker who made his name at the London club, winning three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League between 2004 and 2012.
Drogba, who is 36-years-old, is looking for one last chance to play Champions League football, and both Chelsea and Juventus present that option.
Drogba's age must certainly be a concern for any club, as Juventus manager, Antonio Conte, reportedly wants a younger striker like Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, though Drogba would add an afordable and experienced option in attack.
Mourinho, who coached Drogba from 2004 to 2007, was embroiled in his usual controversy this season and has always been full of praises for the Ivorian.
If the Portuguese would call Drogba, the striker would surely join Stamford Bridge rather than Juventus.
Should Chelsea move for Drogba, or is he too old? Have your say in the comments section below.
