Didier Drogba has admitted nothing is certain in football but he still plans to stay with Chelsea next season.
The striker has always maintained that he will remain at Stamford Bridge at least until his contract expires in the summer of 2010
He insists he is still committed to the club but concedes it would be foolish to make any promises.
"I have one year remaining on my contract with Chelsea," Drogba told L'Equipe.
"Last September when my book was published, I stated I will stay until the end of my contract.
"However a lot of things can happen that won't depend on me. When I was at Marseille I really thought I could stay a long time, and a few days later I was asked to leave, so..."
Drogba has regularly been linked with a move to Inter Milan, where he would be reunited with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
The 31-year-old understands that it is Mourinho's desire to one day possess a strike partnership of himself and Samuel Eto'o of Barcelona.
Drogba is not sure such a scenario could ever become a reality, although he would love to see Eto'o join Chelsea.
He explained: "Could I play one day with Eto'o? Yes, it was even almost done at one moment when I was at Chelsea.
"Does Mourinho want it? Yes, it is his dream. So they just both have to come to Chelsea!
"Seriously, if he signs at Chelsea, Samuel will have a great experience with a great coach."
