Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has revealed that he already talked with his former employer over a possible return, Express reports.
The 37-year-old is currently playing for MLS side Montreal Impact, but looks set to make a return to England after he retired.
Drogba has been a prominent figure for the Blues since his arrival in 2004 until his departure in 2012, before making another return in the 2014-2015 campaign.
He managed to net a total of 164 goals from his two spells at the club and has now revealed his intentions of returning with a non-playing role.
“I want to give back to the club which has given so much to me. I have agreed that with the club directors,” he said.
“Why not manager? Why not sporting director, trainer at the academy or maybe an advising role for strikers?”
It was earlier believed that the current Premier League champions were plotting a move to bring the former Ivory Coast international back to Stamford Bridge in order to improve the morale of the players due to their recent form.
The club are currently 15th on the league table after struggling to pick up points as they have already registered seven losses from their first 13 matches of the competition.
