Didier Drogba: Tipped to return to Europe but has played down speculation

Drogba has been linked with a move back to European football after reportedly failing to settle in China, with Italian giants Juventus and AC Milan rumoured to be leading the chase.

Speculation has suggested that he has the option to end his two-and-a-half-year deal early, but he is calm about the situation and says it will be down to Shanghai whether he leaves or not.

He told L'Equipe: "Whatever will happen I have a club. I have not signed anything anywhere.

"Even in China a contract is a FIFA contract, isn't it? It has no value? So far there are a lot of people talking.

"People have to talk to Shanghai first. Rules are rules."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
