Drogba staying at Chelsea


Ivory Coast international forward Didier Drogba has insisted he wishes to stay at Chelsea; despite continuous news reports that the forward is set to be sold to either AC Milan or Inter Milan this summer.

Drogba instead wants to see out the remainder of his contract at Stamford Bridge, and is looking set to be part of Luiz Felipe Scolari's plans at Chelsea.

"I have a contract with Chelsea until 2010, so I am still a Chelsea player," the striker told skysports.com during a promotional campaign for his autobiography back in Ivory Coast.

"Mourinho is my friend and I am happy for him because he was missing coaching.

"He is a top coach but, like I said, my contract here runs until 2010."
