Wages would scupper Drogba deal to Spurs


Harry Redknapp would be interested in signing Didier Drogba but wages may be a problem.

The Chelsea striker is available on a free transfer this summer and his recent performances including his volley against Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final have reminded onlookers that the 34-year-old still has more to give.

Spurs fans may be thinking that this is all irrelevant speculation when we don’t even know if Harry Redknapp will even remain at White Hart Lane past the end of this season.  The Spurs boss is expected to take over the regins with England.

Harry is always keen to get a bargain deal – but could this mean that Adebayor will not be returning to the Lane next season?

Redknapp said: “He is a free but I was just reading in the paper about him going to China.

“It seems the money in China at the moment is incredible. Players can go there and make a fortune.

“He would be a great player for Chelsea to keep or for somebody else to take. Anyone would be interested but you would have to be able to afford his wages. That is going to be the key. If he is on a free you are going to have to pay him a fortune.

“But he is a powerhouse when he is on his game. He is strong and almost unplayable when he is really at it.

“It was an amazing goal he scored against us. He smashed it from an angle.

“His strength in holding (Spurs defender William) Gallas off and then hitting the ball from where he did, there aren’t too many players who could have done that.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Gallas was rubbish on that nite. Anyone would look good playing against our defense! The last thing we need is another old fart!

  2. if drogba is such a powerhouse as the illiterate says why would chelsea want to let him go? Arry should fuck off before the end of the season , I always supported him but he turned out to be a fink, he shoulda told the dunces at the fa he wasnt interested straight away but preffered to have his apples in two bags seeing what would work out best for him, Fuck him and we should think about levy too. Levy should tell tottenham managers that this is the job and this and no other, let that be clear at the start. Capello would be a choice,hes abetter manager than redknapp but lacks maybe empathy.Redknapp is a nutcase he keeps talking about winning our games but doesnt realise we lose em.

  3. Harry will never win us a Title bring in Mauhrino. he has let us down at the end of every season. and quite frankly his signings leave a lot to be desired in recent windows. Our defence is shocking, the team look deflated and already beaten. Bale and Modric want to go to better teams and there recent play has also been shocking.
