Drogba claims he will stay for another two years

August 10, 2008

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba claims he will remain at Stamford Bridge for another two years at least.

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move away from the club all summer, with Barcelona, AC Milan and Internazionale all thought to be possible destinations for the 30-year-old.

However, Drogba insists he is going nowhere and that he will happily see out his contract with the Blues.

'I have always said that I am very happy at Chelsea,' he told France Football. 'It's a great team with great players and a great coach.

'Everything's going well here and I have two years left on my contract and I will spend them at Chelsea.'

In an interview with the same magazine last October, soon after the departure of Jose Mourinho as manager, Drogba claimed he wanted to quit Stamford Bridge.

'I want to leave Chelsea,' he said. 'Something is broken with Chelsea. Nothing can stop me from leaving now.'

He later said he regretted the remarks and was '100% committed' to Chelsea.
