The 33-year-old still has another 15 months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, but speculation is increasing that he could leave the club in the summer.

Drogba is now in his seventh year with the club and admits he will be seeing what happens when he holds discussions over a possible extension.

"It will be very interesting to see what happens in May," Drogba said.

"Then we can sit and speak about it and have a coffee."

Drogba has recently struggled to hold down a first-team place following the £50million arrival of Fernando Torres from Liverpool.

The Ivorian admits it has been hard adapting to not playing every week.


"It wasn't easy the first week but that's normal," he said.

"Today, I know that we're doing this for the best of the team. The team is more competitive.

"Everybody talks a lot about my future but I'm enjoying it and I'm happy to be here.

"We have a lot of strikers but I can't complain, I'm not the only one.

"Salomon Kalou is not playing, (Florent) Malouda is not playing, sometimes Anelka, sometimes me, Nando.

"I think it's good for the team. A team like Chelsea must have a lot of players to achieve a lot in a year."

Drogba revealed that coach Carlo Ancelotti has explained his selection decisions to the team.

"Communication is important - communication is what makes a player feel profitable in every situation," said the forward.
