The last time that Didier Drogba kicked a ball in a Chelsea jersey was on May 19, 2012, when he slotted a penalty past Manuel Neuer to give the club its first-ever Champions League title.

Over two years have gone by since then, during which time Drogba featured at Galatasaray and starred for Cote d'Ivoire at this year's World Cup.

But in what could very likely be his last move at the club level, Drogba - the man who's acclaimed for ending the civil war in his homeland - is reportedly returning to Stamford Bridge.

According to reliable French media outlet l'Equipe, the 36-year-old striker is expected to sign a one-year deal with Chelsea at the beginning of next week, and there's also talk of him progressing into a coaching position once he hangs up the cleats.
