Chelsea will head into the season with new signing Diego Costa as their main attacking threat, but with Romelu Lukaku once more linked with a loan move away fro the club, Samuel Eto'o released and Demba Ba subject to interest from both Everton and Newcastle, they will need some more options if they want to challenge Man City for the league title. Free agent Drogba had been heavily linked with a move to Juventus, but Jose Mourinho wants to bring the striker back the club where he made a huge impact before moving to Turkey, and though his age is advancing, he still scored two goals last season in the Champions League, and he would be the kind of impact sub that Chelsea might just need to ease the pressure on Costa. Mourinho is apparently ready to offer him a position on the club's coaching staff to help convince him to re-sign. Meanwhile Jose Mourinho is apparently looking to sabotage Arsenal's move for £20m rated midfielder Sami Khedira, who he knew from his own time at Madrid, to bolster the defensive options in his midfield. The sticking point might well be the player's exorbitant wage demands of £150,000 a week, but if anyone can afford it, it's Chelsea.
