LONDON (AFP) - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed on Friday that he is considering a move to bring former striker Didier Drogba back to the club after he was released by Galatasaray.

"We think about it,” Mourinho told the Friday editions of several British newspapers.

"We want to win matches and win titles and Didier is one of the best strikers in Europe. He is still very adapted to the needs of the Premier League and we are thinking about it in a non-emotional way.”

Drogba, 36, registered 157 goals during an eight-year spell at Stamford Bridge that culminated in him scoring the equaliser and then the winning penalty against Bayern Munich in the 2012 Champions League final.
