Dider Drogba ended up at Shanghai Shenhua. Salomon Kalou went to Lille. We won't be seeing much of either player next season. But the last of Chelsea's departing free agent trio has apparently landed a little closer to home. According to a report in the Telegraph, right back Jose Bosingwa has signed on a free with Queens Park Rangers.

I'm a little surprised he didn't land somewhere sooner, considering the hilariously poor state of the right back position in world football, but by the end of his time at Chelsea it was abundantly clear that he's no longer very good there. Amusingly, he was superb at centre back and left back when forced out of position, and considering the sorry state of QPR's defence they might be better served fielding ol' Eyebrows as a centre half.

Anyway, good luck to Bosingwa at his new club. For all of his flaws as a player, he was a major part of Chelsea winning their first ever Champions League, and we should try to remember that. At least a little bit.
