Manchester City have moved to deny speculation linking them with a £20m move for Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Reports this morning claimed that City were in discussions about a spectacular move for the Ivorian with Drogba’s agent naming the Manchester outfit as the only club he had held direct discussions with.

“Didier has always said he dreams of finishing his career at Marseille but, between his dreams and reality, there is a gap,” Seydi told Radio Monte Carlo. “What is certain is that, for now, he is very happy at Chelsea.”

Asked if he had received a lot of offers, he replied: “Strangely, that is not the case. There are only two or three clubs that could interest Didier. We speak about Marseille a lot because they are in his heart. If Marseille want Didier, maybe they can call me, but nobody has done yet.”

“Today he’s at Chelsea. Maybe there will be surprises before August 31. The only contact I’ve had directly was with City, but getting Drogba out of Chelsea is not an easy task because he has all the conditions he needs to flourish there.

“At his age, I can no longer hide the financial aspect. The club that want Didier will have to meet the price.”

But Manchester City have moved to deny their interest and director of communications Vicky Kloss told The Times:

“We can categorically state we have no interest in signing Didier Drogba and any suggestion of an approach is entirely without foundation.”
