Dubai, June 2: Al Wasl manager Diego Maradona is trying to convince ex-Chelsea star striker Didier Drogba over joining the United Arab Emirates side.
Although Shenhua have claimed that the 34-yr-old has made an agreement to join the Chinese club, the United Arab Emirates side, managed by Maradona, are hoping to persuade him to join them.
“Who in the world would not want Drogba? Every team would love to have such a player in their ranks,” The Sun quoted Maradona, as saying.
The Dubai club are trying to match the 300,000-a-week wages the Chinese are willing to pay Drogba and are they hoping that big donations to his charity will help them lure the striker to the club. (ANI)
