08:37 AM ET 07.06 | A year after Didier Drogba rejected a proposed $10 million annual salary from MLS -- a windfall that would've been by far the richest in the league's history -- the star striker now is interested in coming stateside. But if he does, it won't be to New York. The Red Bulls had put in a discovery claim on Drogba last year, along with one on Kaka. But while a source within MLS confirmed that there is still right now considerable interest in bringing the 35-year-old Ivorian forward to the league, the Red Bulls "are not involved in this proposed deal" and Drogba is "not on their radar." It's unclear which team is on Drogba?'s radar, but one seemingly is. And the Galatasaray forward seems to have had at least passing interest in MLS for awhile.
