Door still open for Drogba
Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay insists the door has not been closed on Champions League hero Didier Drogba's Stamford Bridge career.
It was reported in France on Monday that Drogba is resigned to leaving but Gourlay has kept the door open on him remaining.
Gourlay told Chelsea TV: "Conversations with Didier have been going on for months and still are.
"He's made it clear he loves Chelsea and loves everything he's achieved at the club."
Fernado Torres has expressed his unhappiness at what he sees as a lack of opportunities since his £50million move from Liverpool and Gourlay expressed some sympathy for the Spain international.
"Torres came on when we were behind and played a big part to help us win the Champions League," he said.
"I'd be surprised if Fernando, who's been awesome, didn't want more time on the field, every player does."
Chelsea have been linked with Radamel Falcao, Hulk and Edinson Cavani should they decide to end Drogba's time at the club.
Lille playmaker Eden Hazard, Sao Paulo's Lucas Moura and Bayer Leverkusen's Andre Schurrle are other reported targets if Abramovich decides to pursue a summer recruitment policy.
