Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has publically confirmed his desire to resign former striker Didier Drogba, Daily Mail reports.

The Portuguese boss has recently completed the £32million deal for Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa, but believes Drogba will add some much needed impetus and experience into his young squad.

When asked about the Ivorian’s possible transfer, Mourinho replied: “We think about it. We want to win matches and win titles and Didier is one of the best strikers in Europe.

“He is still very adapted to the needs of the Premier League and we are thinking about it in a  non-emotional way.

“If you bring him back it is not because he is Didier or scored the most important goal in the history of Chelsea, or because I read I need an assistant, no.

“If I bring him back, and the decision has to be made soon, it is because as a player he has qualities to make the team stronger. The team is not about the eleven. It is about the different options and as an option I would not say no about the possibility.”

The ‘Special One’ also insisted that bringing Drogba back to Stamford Bridge is a non-emotional decision, but realizes that he does belong at the club.

“Because we know his heart is pushing him to where he feels he belongs, and because our boss  (owner Roman Abramovich) has this big feeling towards him, we are thinking about the possibility,” Mourinho added.

    Drogba will be such a scare for other teams, even just having his presence around. It’s the fear factor that make me agree with the idea.
