Didier Drogba has taken to Instagram to reveal that he will leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
The 37-year-old striker returned to Chelsea from a spell at Turkish giants Galatasaray in the summer of 2014.
The former Ivory Coast international signed a one-year deal with the Premier League giants.
With that contract now coming to an end, Drogba has revealed that he will leave Stamford Bridge in search of regular first-team football next season.
Today will be my last game for CFC. I have spoken at length with Jose and he understands I want to play for at least one more season. In order to play more football I know I need to go to another club. All the fans know my love for Chelsea & I hope to be back here in the future in another role. Let's enjoy all together!!!! #thankyou #cfcforever #championsofeurope #
Drogba has been Chelsea’s third-choice striker behind Diego Costa and Loic Remy this season.
The former Marseille star has made 27 appearances in the Premier League, but many of them have come as a substitute.
In those 27 matches, Drogba has scored four goals and created 14 chances, while having a pass accuracy of 59% and a shot accuracy of 36%. The Ivorian has won 44 headers, 10 dribbles and 12 tackles.
It will be interesting to see which club Drogba joins after leaving Chelsea.
