Milan Rule Out Didier Drogba Signing

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba

AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has dismissed rumours that Didier Drogba will be signing for them this month.

Drogba is looking for a new club after his disappointing spell in China last year and has been heavily linked with a move to Italy this month as he is desperate for a return to European football.

The Ivorian striker has been training with former club Chelsea to ensure his fitness levels do not drop, but no club is yet to make him a serious offer.

Juventus have also been rumoured to be interested in bringing the 34-year-old to Italy and he would be eligible to feature in European competitions for the rest of the season that could be a big draw for certain clubs.

Galliani has a clear vision when it comes to possible Milan purchases and signing a forward who turns 35 in a few weeks is certainly not part of it.

“We want a younger Milan and Italian,” Galliani told Gazzeta Sport.

“Drogba? I do not think that will be in Italy.”
