Didier Drogba may be on his way back to Stamford Bridge.
French news outlet L'Equipe is reporting that the 36-year-old Ivorian striker will sign with Chelsea at the beginning of next week.
The contract is believed to be for "one year or less" according to the report.
The report also states that Drogba will be given the chance to become part of the team's coaching staff once he decides to retire.
Drogba spent eight seasons with Chelsea between 2004 and 2012, twice winning the BPL Golden Boot and leading the team to its first-ever European Championship. Drogba scored the decisive penalty in Chelsea's 2012 Champions League Final victory over Bayern Munich but would depart the club the very next summer for China's Shanghai Shenhua.
He would return to European competition with Turkish side Galatasaray in 2013-14, scoring 15 goals in 37 appearances.
