RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba has been dealing with a toe injury for the last couple of weeks but he still intends to play in Saturday's game against Toronto FC, John Molinaro of Sportsnet reports.

Drogba made his MLS debut this past weekend with 31 minutes off the bench and he was apparently dealing with the toe injury during that outing as well. Over time he's expected to start, but his current spat with injury may ultimately keep him on the bench against Toronto FC.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba will begin Saturday's game against the Union off the bench.

Saturday is the first time that Drogba is available to play for his new squad, but he's still working on his match fitness as Dominic Oduro will continue to start at the forefront of Montreal's 4-2-3-1 formation. However, Drogba is expected to overtake Oduro for that spot in due time as he begins his MLS tenure after a stunning club career in Europe.

Drogba is expected to make his MLS debut against Philadelphia on Aug. 22, Doug McIntyre of ESPN reports.

Drogba was acquired by the Impact at the end of July and has needed a few weeks to work his way back to match fitness. His admittance into the starting XI is expected to move Dominic Oduro to the bench as Drogba plays as the lone forward in head coach Frank Klopas' formation.

Drogba officially signed with the Impact on Monday on a free transfer from Chelsea.

Drogba, 37, is a prolific goal scorer throughout his illustrious career, and he becomes the third English Premier League legend to join Major League Soccer this season, along with Steven Gerrard and former Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard. Drogba still has to get his work visa, so it remains unclear when he will begin training with the club.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

The Impact have acquired the MLS rights to Drogba, who is expected to sign with the club soon, ESPN FC reports.

It was believed that Drogba was close to signing with the Fire, but Montreal swept in and acquired the rights to sign Drogba. He still needs to agree to a contract, but if he makes the firm decision to join Major League Soccer, it will be with Montreal. Drogba played sparingly last season for Chelsea and is already 37 years old, but he was an elite goal-scorer and could be a solid fantasy play in the States.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba confirmed that he is in discussions to join a team in the Major League Soccer this summer, reports Sky Sports.

Drogba was released by Chelsea at the end of last season, and now appears likely to follow Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard to MLS.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Drogba hinted that he may be interested in a move to the United States to finish his career in the MLS, reports Sky Sports.

Drogba played his last match for Chelsea last weekend and said he would take a few days or weeks to decide where he would play next. He has already ruled out playing in the Premier League.
