Guardian: Manchester City will not interfere with Drogba move

It's always interesting that a rumour gets debunked before you've even seen that it's a rumour, which is exactly what just happened with Manchester City's supposed interest in interfering with Chelsea's plans to bring back Didier Drogba on a free transfer. We weren't worried about it because it wasn't being talked about, and now that we're talking about it, it's in past tense: the Guardian report that City aren't going to try to sign Drogba, despite Alvaro Negredo's recent metatarsal injury.

Which, well, ok. Chelsea don't have to worry about something that they already weren't worried about. Meanwhile, we still don't know whether Drogba is actually coming back to the club and, if so, how he'll fit in. With Diego Costa, Romelu Lukaku and Fernando Torres all in the squad, does it make sense to bring in a fourth (and by now fairly limited) centre forward option? How much coaching might he be doing? Will Lukaku be sold?

Essentially everything is confusing at the moment. Welcome to summer.
