The Montreal Impact striker said he was still in discussions with the Major League Soccer outfit, who he joined last year.





French newspaper L'Equipe earlier reported on Wednesday that the Ivory Coast legend had already informed Montreal of his plans to quit and return to Chelsea.

Drogba's future has been the subject of intense speculation since he was seen seated alongside Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Guus Hiddink during the Premier League team's match against Sunderland last month.

Montreal are reportedly reluctant to part company with Drogba, who is contracted to the club for the 2016 season.

The 37-year-old made a spectacular start to his MLS career last season, with 11 goals in 11 regular-season matches.
