Marwan bin Bayat would not say Wednesday how much Al Wasl has offered Drogba, only that it was less than what has been offered from the Chinese team. Drogba has been linked to Shanghai Shenhua, which also has hired former Argentina coach Sergio Batista and another former Chelsea player in Nicolas Anelka.

Bin Bayat said the club, which is coached by Diego Maradona, was ''definitely serious'' about Drogba but that the Ivorian striker ''seems more interested in China.''

Maradona wants the club to bring in bigger names after a season in which it finished eighth in the 12-team UAE pro league.
