Didier Drogba announces his departure from Chelsea

Didier Drogba will leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

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.

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.
