Chelsea ace Didier Drogba has had no contact with Manchester City amid rumours of a potential summer move, according to his agent.
Reports have surfaced that the striker could leave the Blues for Eastlands at the end of the season, with City star Carlos Tevez making the reverse journey.
Drogba, a £24million arrival at Stamford Bridge from Marseille in 2004, has established himself as a key part of Carlo Ancelotti's squad.
However the Ivory Coast international, who is contracted in West London until June next year, is thought to have become unsettled by the arrival of £50m man Fernando Torres from Liverpool in the January transfer window.
The player's agent, Tierno Seydhi, says the 33-year-old will sit down to discuss his future with Chelsea at the end of the campaign.
And while Seydhi claims Drogba is happy with the Blues, he admits big-spending City's potential to succeed domestically and in Europe could have some pull.
He told skysports.com: "Didier Drogba has a contract until 2012 with Chelsea. He is settled in England and loves to play for Chelsea.
"We are waiting until the end of the season, when we will have a chat with the Chelsea officials and see.
"We have not been contacted by City at the moment so we can't say anything about it.
"But we all know they want to be a force in England and Europe."
It is rumoured that Drogba is also considering a move across the pond to Major League Soccer because of the quality of life it would provide for his family.
Striking ace Tevez, meanwhile, has been heavily linked with a City exit in the summer, with Italian giants Inter Milan also believed to be interested in his services.
