Chelsea have made an offer to Didier Drogba in an effort to woo him back to Stamford Bridge for a third time, according to the striker's agent.
Guus Hiddink was unveiled as the new manager at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 19 December following the shock dismissal of Jose Mourinho three days earlier.
The Dutchman was in attendance on Saturday as Chelsea cruised to a 3-1 win over Sunderland sitting alongside the legendary Blues striker, sparking rumours of another homecoming for the veteran Ivorian.
Drogba's current club Montreal Impact tweeted any rumours regarding their striker and another Chelsea reunion were "unfounded", but Hiddink is still keen to bring the 37-year-old back to west London. As quoted by The Mail, he said: "I'd be happy to have him here. At the moment he is still attached to his contract in Canada. But it is intended that he's involved."
According to Canadian outlet RDS, Chelsea have moved ahead with an "unspecified" offer to the 36-year-old striker. Drogba's agent, Thierno Seydi has however made it clear to the publication that his client is still under contract with the Impact.
Seydi did not specify what sort of position the Premier League champions had offered.
Drogba scored the winning penalty in Chelsea's maiden Champions League final triumph against Bayern Munich in 2012 before joining Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua. The former Marseille striker then joined Galatasaray in January 2013 before returning to the Premier League to reunite with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea in the summer of 2014.
Since leaving the Blues in July 2015, Drogba followed in the footsteps of former teammate Frank Lampard by heading to Major League Soccer (MLS) and signing for the Montreal Impact. He scored 11 goals in total during his first season in Quebec as Mauro Biello's side progressed through to the Eastern Conference semi-finals before losing to Colombus Crew.
