Drogba confirms MLS talks

The striker has admitted he is in negotiations with a team in America and would also be open to a move to Inter

Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba has confirmed he is in talks with an unnamed MLS club, while leaving the door open to a move to Inter.

Drogba has made no secret of his desire to play in the United States, with the free agent is reportedly set to join Chicago Fire.

Montreal Impact have also been linked with the 37-year-old, while reports suggest Serie A giants Inter are interested, but Drogba says only one team are currently in the running.

“I’m not aware of that situation [with Inter],” Drogba told FCInter1908.

“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.”

The former Ivory Coast captain was further quizzed about Inter’s interest and his willingness to provide back up for Argentina international forward Mauro Icardi should he make the move to Italy.

The two-time African Player of the Year said: “It would be absolutely no problem. In every team there are players you have to compete with for a place in the team.”

Drogba scored over 150 goals in two different spells for Chelsea, winning four Premier League titles and the Champions League in the process.
