Al Wasl FC have made a bid for former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, says the chairman of the UAE club.

But the club expects the Ivorian player to sign with a Chinese club.

Marwan bin Bayat said his aside Al Wasl could not match the financial package Drogba has been offered from the Far East.

Bin Bayat said Al Wasl, coached by Diego Maradona, is "definitely serious" about Drogba, but that the Ivorian striker "seems more interested in China".

Maradona guided the club to a disappointing eighth in the 12-team UAE Pro League.
