DIDIER DROGBA has rubbished suggestions Chelsea are concentrating only on European glory - and says he would love nothing more than a win over Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday, writes Dan Levene.
But for all that, the Blues' two-goal hero on Tuesday night against Atletico Madrid, who returned with a bang after his European ban, has his eyes on a return to the Spanish capital in May, where the final will be played.
"The Champions League is the target for all the teams," he said.
"You know they all want to win it. Yes, it would be nice if we had a chance to come back here again to Madrid. It would be really nice. But the road is far."
Drogba, recently heralded as the best striker in the world by team-mate Frank Lampard, claimed the best way to re-establish the team's invincibility at home was to eclipse Manchester United, who were hardly firing on all four cylinders in their shaky 3-3 draw with CSKA Moscow.
He said: "Of course we need character, because it's going to be another championship game.
"But I think maybe it'll be a game with more intensity - and a different team.
"So it's going to be a big game. "If we win, it's going to be nice because we are top of the league and the objective when you play at home is always to win, especially against one of the other contenders for the title."
"We have to do everything for Stamford Bridge to become a fortress."
