Drogba to Shenhua? Announcement coming soon!

Moving to Shenhua?
Shanghai Shenhua owner Zhu Jun is confident that Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will announce his arrival at the Chinese club in the coming days. The free spending owner is waiting for the announcement to be made on Drogba's official website The video game magnate could not confirm an agreement but hinted that a deal was on hand and soon to be finalized.

"You should ask this question to Drogba's management," Zhu Jun told reporters asking when the announcement would come. "We have put in great effort for nearly half a year and particularly last week, when we met with his management team to reach a unanimous agreement on some crucial points.

"As of this morning, things are developing in the right direction, but I don't know if Drogba will announce he is joining us today. Right now, I really don't know. Maybe I can give you all an answer tomorrow, maybe we need to wait a few more days. Who knows?" The Chinese mega club is set to commit Drogba to a two-and-a-half year deal at the club, with the Ivorian set to lead their quest of challenging for a Super League title.

Drogba's former strike partner Nicolas Anelka is also at the club and is the captain of the side. Anelka was recently relieved of his coaching duties in his dual role of player-coach as new Argentine coach Sergio Batista is now at the helm of affairs.

However, Drogba would not be able to sign a deal at the club until completion of his Chelsea contract on June 30.
