Sir Alex Ferguson has said he that he might well have been tempted to try and sign Chelsea's Didier Drogba if the striker had wanted to stay in England.
Drogba has gone down in Chelsea folklore and certainly come up with the goods for the Blues when needed including a dramatic goal in the Champions League final that Chelsea eventually won on penalties.
The striker left for China in search of a new challenge, but Fergie said he would have certainly been interested if he had not wanted to move abroad.
Speaking in a press conference in China Fergie said: "The decision was his anyway - and he said if he was going to leave Chelsea he wouldn't play for another club in England.
"So that answered that question, but I could have been tempted."
