Didier Drogba has been advised to snub a sensational return to Chelsea and instead join Italian champions Juventus when he leaves Galatasaray.

The Stamford Bridge idol is out of contract this summer and has been linked with a move back to Jose Mourinho’s side where he spent eight trophy-laden seasons.The Ivorian powerhouse will captain his country in next month’s World Cup, and will decide where his future lies once his time in Brazil is finished.

Chelsea are keen to offer Drogba a playing role with the view to becoming a coach, but Gala boss and former Manchester City chief Roberto Mancini has urged the striker to pursue a new challenge in Serie A with Antonio Conte’s men.

He told Tuttosport: “If Juventus were to take Drogba, it would be a great signing.

“He’d be an important reinforcement, very useful, particularly in order to have an assault on the Champions League. Drogba can give you a lot from this point of view.”I’ve trained Drogba this season and it was a pleasure to do so. He’s a great champion. I can tell you that I was amazed by Drogba – he’s a great person.

“He’s always behaved well with me, from the first minute to until the last. His contribution was never limited to the pitch alone.

“If anyone thinks he is not as motivated as before due to his age, they’re wrong. After all these months I can confirm that he’s decent, driven and humble.

“He can’t play 50 games a year, of course. Time passes for everyone, even him. But even when he’s not 100 per cent, he’s still devastating to opponents.

“He hasn’t played for the last two months, but he’s preparing for the World Cup and I know he is already much better.”
