Jose Mourinho expects club legend Didier Drogba to one day return to the club possibly in a coaching capacity, ESPN understands.
The Blues boss brought the Ivory Coast international to Stamford Bridge back in 2004, with the striker going on to score 157 goals in 341 appearances, as well as the winning penalty in the 2012 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
Drogba now plies his trade with Galatasaray, having spent a short spell in China with Shanghai Shenhua.
The 35 year old has one year left on his contract in Turkey but Mourinho believes that Chelsea will always be his true home, and has tipped him to return before too long.
Meanwhile, the club are considering a move for Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, the Metro understands.
The Spanish giants are looking to raise funds as they prepare a fresh bid for Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale, and the Blues could take advantage by making a move for the Germany international.
Khedira is also likely to fall down the pecking order at the Bernabeu following the arrivals of Spanish duo Asier Illarramendi and Isco.
Finally, TalkSport have claimed that Napoli and Inter Milan have joined Benfica in the race to take Brazilian defender Wallace on loan.
