Manchetser City are lining up a £20million bid for Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

City boss, Roberto Mancini, has been an admirer of the striker for a long time and wants to make a move for him.

The Ivory Coast star has not ruled out a £20m move up north.

If Drogba takes the offer from City, he would earn more than £18m in a three year contract at Eastlands.

The striker won the Golden Boot with 29 Premier League goals last term as Chelsea stormed to the English Premier League title and FA Cup. However, he didnt have an amazing World Cup like many other players from the EPL.

Drogba still has two more years to run on his deal at the London club, but could leave for the chance to rack in more money. 

If he was to leave the current league champions, Chelsea would swoop in and make sure that a move for Liverpool striker Fernando Torres would be made.

Man. City have already has a summer shopping spree and have forked out £60m for the likes of David Silva, Jerome Boateng and Yaya Toure.

Mancini hasnt stopped yet. He has three new boys, has his eye fixed on Drogba, and also wants Lazio defender Aleksander Kolarov to add to his team
