Chelsea are set to hold talks with Derby over making Frank Lampard their new manager following Maurizio Sarri’s departure to Juventus.

Drogba backs Lampard as next Chelsea manager if Sarri leaves Zola’s Chelsea future hangs in the balance as Sarri saga rumbles on He said: “I'm sure Chelsea and Frank will re-unite at some point and if that ever happened, you'd understand because that's his club.

Lampard has emerged as the clear favourite to replace Sarri, who has been given the go-ahead to leave Stamford Bridge after a compensation package worth up to £10m was agreed with the Serie A champions.

Derby owner Mel Morris admitted last month that he expected Lampard to be Chelsea manager sooner rather than later even though he wanted to keep him.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici and Sarri’s key intermediary, Fali Ramadani, travelled to London this week to finalise a deal with Chelsea.

Chelsea want to make a swift appointment now that Sarri’s situation has been resolved and Lampard looks certain to make a dream return to west London, where he played between 2001-14 and scored a club-record 211 goals.

It will cost Chelsea £4m to prise the 40-year-old away from Pride Park, but that shouldn’t pose much of a problem.
