So, his return is as good as confirmed. If I'm not mistake, that means that we now have to let at least two players go to comply with the squads rules for the PL.

Really? Who will go? Mikel? Torres?

Cech.....:'(

Didier Drogba honoured by Football Writers' Association as Jose Mourinho hails striker as Chelsea's best value player of all time DROGBA: MOURINHO SPEAKS ABOUT DROGBA 'Didier arrived at Stamford Br

Drogba asked Torres how his goal record has come along since he left. Torres did not find that question amusing.

Mourinho most definitely has a ruthless side as he showed with Cole, Lampard, etc. but I think sentimentality is clouding his better judgement here. I remember he said Drogba was his favourite of all the players he'd managed and having not worked with him for many years I suspect he has long been craving a reunion. Not a good move in my opinion.

Lmao saw on Goal there's a rumour City want him as cover for Negredo.. really, people get paid to write this!

Like you and I wouldn't take that job in 2 seconds! :) It's easy. Just have two hats. One with player names in it and one with teams. "Sources tell me that Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi is close to joining Scottish League two side East Fife in a shock transfer". That is fun!!!

@Choulo-I think it means that Torres will go. The third striker on a team barely plays but having 4 strikers is useless. I think Atletico will buy Torres and whatever they pay for him is a good deal for us.

Honestly it makes no sense to have both Lukaku and Torres in the team, and even less sense to have strikers as you said. I hope it's Torres but fear it's Lukaku who'll leave.

That could be possible. But who wouldn't want Drogba back? I believe if he comes, he can still make an impact. Klose is old, look what's he's been able to do. Lukaku and Costa would be our MAIN strikers, still.

Yes, I can definitely see that as well. If Mourinho doesn't like Lukaku, we might as well sell him for some big money but...that would leave Chelsea with a massive weakness at striker again. I am not sold on Costa as an elite player but no matter what, you need a second striker who can play and I don't think Drogba or Torres are even premier league caliber players anymore(and I mean that) never mind Chelsea caliber players. If that is the case, the Drogba signing is awful and makes us a much worse team. If it's Torres who goes, it really doesn't make any change except gets us some money and some leadership.

Klose is not a target man. He's a poacher with good positioning

Drogba isn't half the player he used to be.

I feel you're right.

One of Cech/Courtois + someone else?

And you are Lukaku? I like Romelu for his potential, not because of what he's accomplished on the pitch. Costa, Torres and Drogba is a very good strike force when you think of where we finished(4pts off the title, semis of the CL) Its not like we need boatloads of goals to reach our objectives.

You'd be extremely hard pressed to find 5 strikers who can play with their back to goal as well as Drogba even at 36. He's still incredibly strong and provides us with something we don't have.

Didn't Jose say both are staying yesterday?

I think it will be one of Torres and Lukaku, and one of MVG and Romeu loaned out or Mikel sold.

.

Jose sends loads of red herrings out in the transfer market, Rooney or bust, Mata staying etc etc

"We want to win matches and win titles, and Didier is one of the best strikers in Europe, who is still very adapted to the needs of the Premier League, and we are thinking about it in a non-emotional way," said Mourinho.

"If you bring him back, it is not because he is Didier or scored the most important goal in the history of Chelsea, or because I read I need an assistant, no.

"If I bring him back -- and the decision has to be made soon, because I want to close the dressing-room door -- it is because as a player he has certain qualities to make the team stronger."

What squad number would he have with Oscar taking the number 11? Is his first number 15 available, i have had a complete memory blank and can't think who has that right now.
