Scolari: Drogba Is Staying

Newly-appointed Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari insists that Didier Drogba is very happy at Stamford Bridge and will be staying at Chelsea.

Drogba's angry comments last season after Jose Mourinho's sacking raised questions over his future at the Bridge, with Milan, Inter, Real Madrid and Barcelona all reportedly interested in signing the Ivory Coast international.

Further doubts over Drogba's future at Chelsea were raised after the striker remained in London while the rest of the Blues squad have traveled to China where they start their tour that also features matches in Macau, Malaysia and Russia.

Chelsea claims that the player is recovering from a knee injury and will return to action in four weeks.

New signings Jose Bosingwa and Deco traveled with Chelsea. And while Drogba did not travel with the rest of the squad, Inter target Frank Lampard went on the tour with Chelsea in order to get ready for the upcoming season.

Drogba's agent said, earlier this week, that the striker will be making up his mind on his future within days, with the Marseille fans clubbing together to raise money for a bid to bring Drogba back to Marseille. The Marseille fans have gathered more than two million Euros as of last week.
