Having confirmed his departure from Chelsea FC, Didier Drogba could see the next stage of his career take him to Spain.

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is believed to be interested in signing Drogba for Real Madrid on a two-year-deal, according to the Daily Mail.

With Carles Puyol advancing in age, Vincent Kompany has been identified as the player to replace him at Barcelona.

The Spanish Cup winners are reported to have offered wages in the region of £160,000 a week, but Kompany is happy to stay at Manchester City, according to the Daily Star.

AC Milan’s reported interest in Carlos Tevez (via Metro) could help in negotiations to bring Thiago Silva to the Etihad Stadium.

Tevez was the subject of a bid from the Italian side in January, but a fee was never agreed. That being said, Milan could readdress the situation over the summer.

The current deal proposed could be dependant on the club also selling Swedish international Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Alessandro Del Piero has called time on his career with Juventus, but has stated that he wishes to continue playing football, according to talkSport.

After making it clear that he would not sign for another Serie A club, Del Piero has caught the interest of Arsenal, Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur.
