He admits talks with the the club's directors have already taken place about him returning to Chelsea.
"I want to give back to the club which has given so much to me. I have agreed that with the club directors," Drogba told BBC Africa.
The former Marseille star has not ruled out managing Chelsea in the future, saying: "Why not manager? Why not sporting director, trainer at the academy or maybe an advising role for strikers?"
