Shanghai still hopeful of Drogba deal

Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua remain confident they will sign Chelsea striker Didier Drogba during the January transfer window.

• Ancelotti: Chelsea must sell Drogba
• Marseille star open to Blues move

Drogba's future at Stamford Bridge has been up for discussion in recent weeks, with player and club so far failing to reach agreement on the terms of a new contract that would extend his stay beyond the end of the current season.

Amid all the uncertainty, Drogba has received firm interest from Shanghai, with the club increasingly hopeful they will be able to reach agreement over a fee with the Blues.

"Everything is going well so far though there have been a few obstacles. They never turned us down, which is good for us," club board member Zhou Jun told The Shanghai Daily.

Shanghai hope the signing of Nicolas Anelka earlier in the transfer window, will help persuade Drogba - who has reportedly been offered a lucrative wage packet - that it is the right move to make.

"It's like making a blockbuster film," Zhou added. "When superstars like Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Zhou Xun have confirmed their participation, other actors and actress will be confident of the movie."
