Didier Drogba rumored to be joining MLS side Seattle Sounders FC

Seattle landing the big Ivorian would be a coup for MLS

Didier Drogba's days playing football in Europe may soon be over, assuming today's rumor mill proves to be accurate. The latest story making the rounds suggest that Drogba will be joining Major League Soccer this summer, teaming up with Clint Dempsey in Seattle.

As an American fan, I'd be absolutely thrilled if this rumor proves to be true. Beyond being an absolutely fantastic human being, Drogba is up there with my favorite players of all time. I have a feeling I'll now be making quite a few road trips to follow the Sounders this fall, though I'll be wearing the same beautiful blue Drogba shirt that I've got on in my profile picture. While I'd obviously prefer to see him join the New York Cosmos, just having him playing in the US would make me smile.

Seattle fans seem to be ecstatic with this potential move, and you all really ought to visit Sounder at Heart as soon as possible to tell them just how lucky they'd be to land the center forward.
