Drogba odds-on for Bridge exit

Bet365 quote odds of 8/15 that the Ivorian leaves Stamford Bridge this summer

It is looking increasingly likely that Didier Drogba’s last touch as a Chelsea player will be the one that secured the Champions League trophy, as bookmakers now offer odds-on prices that he leaves the club this summer.

Bet365 quote odds of 8/15 that the Ivorian leaves Stamford Bridge this summer, with BetVictor offering odds of 11/10 that the moves to China to join Nicolas Anelka at Shanghai Shenhua.

The Mail Online today reported that Drogba will earn £250,000 per week in Shanghai and that his departure will signal the beginning of a new era at Chelsea as Roman Abramovich pledges to invest more money in the team.

“It was written a long time ago that Chelsea were going to win,” said Drogba on winning the Champions League.

“I have been here for eight years and we were always so close, and yet so far at the same time.

“Now we have the cup. The cup is going back to Stamford Bridge and it is the best feeling ever.”

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo is also expected to hold talks with the Blues hierarchy this week and it is anticipated that he will be offered the job on a permanent basis. Bet365 offer of 8/11 on the Italian be named as Andre Vilas-Boas’s successor, although Fabio Capello (10/3) and Harry Redknapp (8/1) are certainly not ruled out of the equation.
