Drogba odds-on to leave Chelsea in January

Sky Bet now make Shanghai Shenhua their 8/11 favourites to sign Drogba

Sky Bet offer odds of just 5/6 that Didier Drogba leaves Stamford Bridge this January after Shanghai Shenhua claimed that they were in talks with the Chelsea striker.

The Ivory Coast international’s contract in West London expires this summer and with the club reluctant to offer a two-year deal Drogba is thought to be considering his future.

“Everything is going well so far, though there have been a few obstacles,” said Zhou Jun, a Shenhua board member.

“Maybe we can complete a deal before Chinese New Year (January 23).”

As a consequence Sky Bet now make Shanghai Shenhua their 8/11 favourites to sign Drogba this January and reunite the Ivorian with former teammate Nicolas Anelka.

But they don’t appear to rule out the possibility of him joining another Chinese Super League side as Guangzhou Evergrande are made the 9/2 second favourites. While the possibility of him being reunited with Carlo Ancelotti at Paris St Germain is priced at 8/1.
