Didier Drogba undoubtedly poured fuel on a flaming fire—in the shape of his Chelsea career—by going berserk on and off the pitch following Chelsea's UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona.

The disgraceful and yet humorous scene that saw Drogba chase the referee until the pair left the pitch intensifies the rumors that the Ivorian striker will be leaving Stamford Bridge.

Should Drogba leave, then his likely destinations include Jose Mourinho's Inter and Real Madrid.

Drogba's ex-partner at Chelsea, Eidur Gudjohnsen, has been left to warm the benches at Nou Camp and is unhappy.

Gudjohnsen intends to leave Barcelona with Fulham, Everton, Tottenham, and other clubs willing to add the Iceland striker to their squad.

On another note, Gareth Barry might finally be moving to Liverpool this summer. However, this move might make Xabi Alonso surplus to requirements at Liverpool.

And where will Alonso go? 

That has to do with what Alonso wants. Juventus, if he wants to go further in his professional career, or Manchester City if he wants to make big money.

Meanwhile, Arsenal might also jump at the chance of pairing Alonso and Cesc Fabrebas. However, the Mirror suggests that Xabi Alonso is on the verge of joining Juventus for £16 million.

Arsene Wenger is also reportedly ready to fill the gaps in his leaky defense.

According to reports, Wenger wants to sign Gary Cahill and/or Bruno Alves from Bolton and Porto respectively.

Finally, Liverpool is set to land Croatian international free-scoring Daniel Pranjic from Herenveen in an £8 million deal, while 19-year-old U.S. International Freddy Adu is likely to return to Benfica next season.
