Drogba's China talks on track

5:16 am on 25 May 2012

Shanghai Shenhua's talks with Chelsea's departing star Didier Drogba are continuing, raising expectations that the Ivory Coast striker will continue his career in China.

The club, which is owned by a video-game mogul, signed Drogba's ex-Chelsea team-mate Nicolas Anelka in December and they have been in talks with the Ivory Coast international since at least January.

Meanwhile Drogba was mobbed by fans as he carried the Olympic torch for the London Games through the city of Swindon, in western England.
