Frank Lampard deal will cost Chelsea £4m in compensation


Derby will demand £4m in compensation if Chelsea is to take Frank Lampard as their new manager – though there is a clause in his contract which allows him to move.

Chelsea is yet to make a formal approach, but Derby are bracing themselves for that to happen now an agreement has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to take over at Juventus.

Chelsea and Juventus have agreed the details of Sarri’s move to Turin, he will not be confirmed until the Premier League club have finalised plans for his replacement, who they hope will be Lampard.

Lampard is Chelsea’s all-time leading goalscorer

Lampard still has two years on his existing contract, and it is understood while he would find it impossible to turn Chelsea down if an offer is made to him, he is also very respectful of Derby’s fans and the club’s owner, Mel Morris, who gave him his first chance as a manager.
