Monteal Impact planning for a future without Didier Drogba

Didier Drogba's return to Chelsea Football Club looks yet another step closer, with a local Canadian journalist reporting that Drogba's current club, Montreal Impact have begun a search for a new striker.

The auto-translator has that as "I am told that it is almost guaranteed that Drogba will not play with the Impact in 2016. #IMFC actively looking for an attacker #RDS".  Friolet's two subsequent tweets clarify that Drogba won't be playing for Montreal because he's got an offer from Chelsea, who see him as a full-time coach within two years.  Until that time, he will be studying towards his badges and presumably serving as some sort of advisor.

While I'm still not entirely comfortable with the idea that Drogba's walking away from his last year at Montraal, it sounds like he's very much tempted by a return to Chelsea.  We certainly could use all the help we can get, both on and off the pitch.
