Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben would welcome the signing of Chelsea striker Didier Drogba to the Bernabeu.
Drogba's future at Stamford Bridge remains uncertain after he publicly confessed his desire to leave the club in an interview with France Football magazine earlier this season.
On Wednesday, the Ivory Coast international moved to cool talk of an exit following fresh reports from Italy claiming he is set to join Serie A side Internazionale in the summer.
Real boss Bernd Schuster has previously expressed his liking of Drogba, and former Blues midfielder Robben has echoed his manager's thoughts after playing alongside the powerful forward during his three years at Chelsea.
"For me, he is a great striker, one of the best in the world," Robben told Sky Sports News.
"He is unbelievably strong. He can score a lot of goals. Last season, when I was at Chelsea, he was probably the most important player at the club.
"He is not only a good footballer, he is a great person. I would really like it if he came here, but it is not up to me to decide.
"We also have a lot of great players here, so we will see what happens."
