Drogba dreaming of Barca switch
Wantaway Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has urged Barcelona to "get their chequebook out" after revealing his dream of partnering Samuel Eto'o

Nicolas Anelka's £15million arrival at Stamford Bridge has cast doubts over the long-term future of Drogba at Chelsea.

And Barcelona are believed to be admirers of Drogba, who is currently preparing for the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, after the forward hinted could be interested in a move to Spain.

But Drogba, who scored 20 Premier League goals last season, recognises that Barca would have to pay top price to gain his services.

"Any striker in my situation would say they'd be really happy to get the chance to play alongside Samuel," Drogba told the Daily Express.

"I don't see why it should not happen. It would be something exceptional. But Barcelona would need to get their chequebook out to make it happen.

"The things I love about Samuel are his pace, his instinct for goals, his running and simply the fact he is indispensable to Barcelona."

Cameroon international Eto'o has also confessed an interest in striking up a partnership with Drogba and has revealed he nearly moved to Chelsea after holding secret talks with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

"I don't see why both of us can't play for the same side," Eto'o added. "Just imagine what a team containing Didier and me would be like.

"I came to London to meet Mourinho in a hotel. We had a good, long discussion but we did not manage to reach an agreement.

"There are sometimes things that you can't explain too much. It was a while ago. But Didier was aware of everything that went on."
