Torres out: Drogba’s Chelsea return set up by China trouble

Star could make impact return to Stamford bridge

Didier Drogba is not having a good time of it.

Not at Shenhua Shanghai, the Chinese Super League club, where reports have emerged of payment problems.

Or, on international duty for the Ivory Coast – having escaped a riot in the Africa Cup of Nations.

What that does, however, is open up the possibility of a loan spell back in the Premier League.

And where else better to have an impact than back at his old, beloved club Chelsea.

Theirry Henry returned on a loan spell from the MLS for Arsenal and did make a difference.

Roberto Di Matteo is struggling with to hone in on a second striker – or first – depending how you view Fernando Torres’ form.

He has four goals, but continues to miss more than he scores. It’s the type of sitters that he misses that is most worrying.

Against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, a one on one with Brad Friedel and a shot from the left with a clear sight of goal.

Atletico Madrid has for all practical purposes priced Radamel Falcao out of a move – though the word ‘practical’ has hardly defined Roman Abramovich’s buying policy.

Drogba would feast on the passess provided by Chelsea’s new magical trip of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata.

Drogba is still in high demand in China according to media reports, but a return to Chelsea will surely set Stamford Bridge alight.
