Reports from Canada suggest that Didier Drogba’s time at MLS side Montreal Impact may be coming to an end. The 38-year-old Ivorian refused to take his place on the bench this weekend when he was left out of the starting XI by coach Mario Biello for the game against Toronto.The former Chelsea striker has been heavily linked with a possible short-term move to Napoli in January as they look to replace Polish frontman Arek Milik who is recovering from knee ligament surgery. Many of the Italian newspapers now believe this could now become a possibility, with German hit-man Miroslav Klose also being linked.
