Chelsea allow Maurizio Sarri to join Juventus - Frank Lampard to take over

Lampard, 40, is fourth on Chelsea's all-time appearance chart with 648.

The former Chelsea FC midfielder has been touted as a possible candidate to take over at Stamford Bridge this summer amid the uncertainty about Maurizio Sarri's future at the west London club.

An upturn in results - which culminated in a third-place finish and success in the Europa League - left Chelsea reluctant to dismiss their head coach, only for Sarri to make clear his desire to return to Italy, citing family reasons.

Frank Lampard is widely regarded as the front-runner for the job despite having only one season of managerial experience with Derby, who he led to the Championship playoff final.

The pending return of club legend Lampard will help galvanise a fanbase that was fractured during Sarri's tumultuous reign.

With Italian Maurizio Sarri's departure to Juventus reported to be imminent, club talisman Eden Hazard already departed to Real Madrid and a Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban looming, Chelsea have arrived at a crossroads.

Lampard won 11 major honours in his 13 years as a player at Stamford Bridge.

The former investment banker failed to win over the Chelsea fans however, who were frustrated by his regimented tactics and his apparent early reluctance to hand central roles to homegrown talents Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

With Maurizio Sarri's announcement as Juventus manager expected imminently, Allegri had been tentatively linked with a move to Stamford Bridge - although Frank Lampard remains the strong favourite.

Meanwhile, the Daily Star say Chelsea will refuse to sell Kurt Zouma because of the prospect of a transfer ban.

Cristiano Ronaldo is understood to have given his blessing for Sarri to succeed Allegri at Juventus.

He is "yet to be given any indication whether he will be required next season" by either Chelsea or Sarri.
