Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas says he would like to sign Didier Drogba.
Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas says he would like to sign Didier Drogba but ruled out a move for Manchester United's Ruud van Nistelrooy.
The Stade Gerland supremo does not think that either Chelsea or United would sell their big-name strikers, even despite van Nistelrooy's apparent fall-out with Sir Alex Ferguson.
The French champions are in the market for a top quality centre forward and his dream would be to land former Marseille star Drogba.
"Didier is one of the best players in Europe," Aulas enthused to L'Equipe. "But I think they absolutely want to keep him.
"Anyway, it is a dream.
"[Van Nistelrooy?] I believe I understood that Manchester don't sell their forwards."
Aulas continues to insist that much-coveted midfielder Mahamadou Diarra will be going nowhere this summer.
"He stays," the chairman stressed. "So far, there is no offer."
