Manchester City offers Drogba double what Chelsea's paying.
London, Jan.23 (ANI): Manchester City has offered Didier Drogba 180, 000-pound a week to quit Chelsea.
The striker is interested because he believes his old boss Jose Mourinho will take over at Eastlands this summer.
Drogba, 30, could earn 40 million pound over a period of four-and-a-half years, reports The Sun.
The tabloid revealed yesterday that Manchester City had turned to 15-million-pound Drogba after failing to get Roque Santa Cruz from Blackburn.
Drogba has fallen out with boss Luiz Felipe Scolari and has not been in the squad for the last two games.
He currently earns 90,000 pounds a week on a contract which has 18 months to run, but City are happy to double his salary. (ANI)
