Didier Drogba's stunning mansion in Surry has been put on the market with a £6.25million valuation.

The Chelsea legend is selling the property he lived in during his second spell at Stamford Bridge between 2014 and 2015, having split from his ex-wife in 2020. Drogba lived in the Surrey mansion with his now former partner Lalla Diakite after returning to the Blues from Galatasaray for a one-season stint eight years ago.

Located in Oxshott, the property is situated near to the club's Cobham training ground, with the 11,000 square feet home including six bedrooms and seven bathrooms across its three floors.
