Cash-rich clubs hound Didier Drogba

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is being pursued by several cash-rich clubs as his deal with Chelsea expires at the end of this season.

He will lead the Ivory Coast side into their clash against Zambia in the final of the Africa Cup Of Nations on Sunday.

Paris St Germain, the New York Red Bulls, Shanghai Shenhua of China and Al-Sod in Qatar are all queuing up to offer Drogba the two-year deal he is seeking from Chelsea.

Drogba, meanwhile, has expressed hope that he will finalize his future soon but Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has said the contract negotiations between both the clubs will move forward only when Drogba returns to Stamford Bridge.

"I hope to finalize my future soon," quoted Drogba, as saying.

But Villas-Boas said, "we will wait until Didier gets back."

Drogba's old strike partner Nicolas Anelka has gone to Shanghai, who are also interested in giving John Terry a short-term deal to escape the racism controversy surrounding him. Negotiations with Chelsea are expected to resume when Drogba returns to Stamford Bridge this week.
