Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have expressed interest in signing Didier Drogba following reports that Shanghai Shenhua are releasing him from his contract.

Tribal Football football understands that financial constraints and an ownership power struggle at the Chinese club will see its top players become free agents.

The Premier League clubs face stiff competition for Drogba's signature from Real Madrid, with manager Jose Mourinho allegedly keen to reunite with the striker he coached at Chelsea.

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have been touted as another potential destination for the player, who left Stamford Bridge for Asia earlier this summer.
