Inter: Drogba not part of Quaresma loan

Inter Milan sporting director Marco Branca has not ruled out a summer move for Didier Drogba and has insisted the club's transfer targets have yet to be identified. Inter loaned Ricardo Quaresma to the Blues after he endured an unhappy time in Italy since his £20million move from Porto last year.

If Quaresma is a success at Stamford Bridge there is every chance coach Luiz Felipe Scolari would want to make the switch a permanent one next summer.

"Chelsea strongly wanted Quaresma, there was no hidden agenda, we only wanted to give him a chance to play more and grow, then next year we will decide what to do with him," said Branca.

Drogba has struggled to find his best form during a season hampered by injury and suspension.

The Ivorian was recently axed from the first-team squad by Scolari after a number of sub-standard performances.

He has been consistently liked with a move to rejoin former Blues boss Jose Mourinho in Serie A but Branca added: "Drogba? At the moment we don't have clear objectives, we know that most probably we will need to buy one or two new players next season, but only of the highest quality."

Quaresma himself is looking forward to his new challenge after such a torrid time at San Siro: "I don't regret going to Milan as sometimes things happen that you can't really control. These things happen in football.

"Players can't really prove anything, if they don't have the opportunity to show what they can do.

"Mr Scolari gives you lots of confidence so I am confident I will give my best for Chelsea. I want to show Chelsea my appreciation and joy on the pitch.

"Each coach has their own ideas and we have to respect that. I don't think I have to prove anything to anybody.

"You get criticism everywhere, some people like you, some don't - that is natural in football and life.

"I don't care about that. What I care about is working hard and helping Chelsea achieve their goals and that's it.

"I heard from Mr Mourinho that Inter were thinking of loaning me to a club and when I heard about Chelsea, I didn't think twice."

Quaresma will remain with Chelsea until the end of the season but the winger is unsure as to whether his spell could lead to a permanent deal in the summer.

"At the moment I am a Chelsea player," said Quaresma. "I signed a very short contract and I am going to show my best qualities. After that I don't know."
