Real candidate claims Drogba deal done

MADRID - Eduardo Garcia, one of several candidates for the Real Madrid presidency, said he had an agreement to sign Chelsea striker Didier Drogba if he won the Primera Liga club's June election.

"We have agreements with three players," Garcia told sports daily AS on Tuesday.

"A Champions League centre forward who scores goals in England. We could present him just after being elected. With people like Drogba we are looking for immediate results."

Garcia added that he had a deal for a Brazilian who occupied a similar position to Kaka, who still played in his native country, and for Racing Santander's left back.

AS named the players as Keirrison of Palmeiras and Ivan Marcano.
