The Galatasaray star and Chelsea legend, 35, will be a free agent at the end of this season and is set to move on from the Turkish club.

And now Drogba is at the centre of a tug of war between two of the Major League Soccer’s biggest clubs, Henry’s Red Bulls, and the Seattle Sounders.

Drogba faces Chelsea tomorrow night in Istanbul for the first time since he drilled home the penalty that won the Champions League in 2012.

The Ivorian also also has the chance to return to Stamford Bridge in a coaching role working with Chelsea’s strikers.

But the offer of a lucrative move to the USA to share a pitch with Henry in New York will be hard to resist.

Henry also wants to bring his former Arsenal teammate Ashley Cole, out of contract at Chelsea at the end of this campaign, to New York - but it is the signing of Drogba which would really excite MLS crowds.
