Former Chelsea striker and club legend Didier Drogba has officially confirmed that he is in talks with an MLS club to make a move this summer to USA, according to Sky Sports. The 37-year-old striker is a free agent now after he was released by the Premier League champions at the end of last season.

Drogba has also been linked with a move to Italian Serie A side Inter Milan but it looks as though he now could be set to follow Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard’s way and join a MLS side. 

Since David Beckham’s move to MLS side La Galaxy, star players around the world have joined MLS teams after ageing out. Frank Lampard from Chelsea and Steven Gerrard from Liverpool are the other two stars from Premier League who joined MLS clubs in recent times.

Drogba was quoted saying: I’m not aware of that situation (with Inter).

Inter are a great club, and certainly if they were to contact me I’d gladly listen to their offer, but I’m currently in talks with an MLS club.

Inter could be an option if they really are interested in me.

It has been reported that MLS team Chicago Fire are in talks to sign the Ivorian legend.

Didier Drogba played for Chelsea FC twice in his career and scored 164 goals in 381 appearances. After leaving the club in 2012, the striker played for Shanghai Shensua and Galatasaray. He rejoined the Blues, last summer for a one year contract and did a fairly decent job for the Champions.
