Drogba to Barcelona: Is it just Chinese whispers?

by Josh Powell | June 26, 2012

Reports circulating on the Twitter universe this morning are that Didier Drogba is about to make a sensational move to Barcelona, just two weeks after signing for the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

Drogba left Chelsea after helping the team to the FA Cup and Champions League double.

The 34-year-old signed a two-and-a-half deal with the Shanghai based club and would reportedly earn a tasty £200,000 a week.

But in a sensational twist it appears that Drogba has a clause in his contract that will allow him to leave Shanghai for free if Barca are interested.

Twitter has practically exploded with excitement and some people are saying that Drogba is already in a hotel in Barcelona ready to start talks today. Other people are reporting Barcelona will be put off by the massive price tag and the aforementioned people are mad.

Essentially nobody knows and it’s all classic ‘taxi driver talk’.

If the move was to come off though it would be one of the most spectacular moves in recent times.
