Drogba 11/10 to be at Chelsea for start of next season

| 20.02.2011

Didier Drogba is 11/10 with Ladbrokes to be a Chelsea player on the first day of next season.

The firm have opened a book on the future of several Chelsea stars and Drogba is the only player odds-against to stay at this stage.

Under-fire manager Carlo Ancelotti is 4/7 to stay with Chelsea stalwarts Terry (1/10) and Lampard (1/5) seemingly likely to remain Chelsea players until at least the first game in the 2011/12 season.

Chelsea are now out to 10/1 to win the Premiership but remain the 11/2 third favourites for the Champions League.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Every Drog has its day and we feel this one’s time might be up at Chelsea. The Champions League appears their most likely chance of salvaging something this season.”
