It is no longer secret that Chelsea will be given their former player Frank Lampard the mandate to lead the team after Italian boss Maurizio Sarri left the club to join Italian Serie A outfit Juventus.

Maurizio Sarri only joined Chelsea last summer transfer window but he can no longer wait as he had a rough year with the Blues fans and the owner.

Frank Lampard has been tipped as favourite among other candidates and there are claims that he has already met with the club owner Roman Abramovich.

While there is yet to be an official claim from either of the parties, sources in Italy are saying that the deal to make Frank Lampard the Chelsea manager is done.

Nicolo Schira from the Gazzetta also added that Frank Lampard will be signing a three-year deal with the club as he already has the backing of the billionaire owner.

However, Frank Lampard is expected to be joined by other former players as backroom staff and technical director.

Names mentioned are Didier Drogba, Petr Cech and Makalele to fill other vacant positions at the West Londo outfit.

The Frank Lampard era is expected to begin as early as possible if the words of the club owner is to be believed.
