Didier Drogba could reunite with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea
Chelsea fans were celebrating a Champions League final success a year ago and a popular pair could return to Stamford Bridge next season to elevate the club back into the big time.

Jose Mourinho is the odds-on favourite to replace Rafael Benitez this summer and it appears that Didier Drogba is open to the idea of linking up with the Portuguese manager as part of a double move that would go down extremely well with supporters.
Drogba lines up for Galatasaray on Wednesday night and will be in opposition to Mourinho’s Madrid, although it is clear that the pair enjoyed working together at Chelsea and the latter’s instalment as manager could see the striker open to a return.
“I think for the club it is the best solution to bring José back,” said the striker. “The fans want him back. He loves Chelsea. Because you want to rebuild a team and to give them the strength we had a few years ago, he could be the right person. He is a winner and is close to the players. He went to Inter and is at Real Madrid but [he] is still talking about Chelsea, so he loves this club.
“I don’t think he has got over Chelsea and they haven’t got over him. When he came he brought success; we won league titles back-to-back with some great football and the only thing he didn’t win was the Champions League. Maybe that is one of the reasons why he might want to come back. It is unfinished business.”
When questioned whether Drogba could return to Chelsea he said: “Let me finish at Galatasaray first and then we will talk about that. It would be nice, not just coaching but to help the club. For this club I gave everything and of course they gave it back to me. I feel at home when I go to London. When I go to Chelsea’s training ground I feel like I can walk around with my eyes closed and know where I am going.”
