Chelsea’s manager, Frank Lampard is doing all he can to prepare his team for next season and to be able to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.
So, plan to sell some of their stars to raise £65million and land West Ham’s Declan Rice.
The Blues let the defensive midfielder go for free as a kid – but boss Frank Lampard has made the England starlet his top priority this summer.
Lamps’ more straightforward idea is to flog midfielder Jorginho.
The likes of Juventus and Inter Milan are likely to pay £40m for the defensive midfielder, who is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.
Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri would like to bring the 29-year-old to the Serie A champions, says the Telegraph.
That would go most of the way to getting the cash for 21-year-old Rice.
