Brila.net can confirm that former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has already agreed on a contract which will see him return to his beloved club as manager.
Lampard is believed to have reached an agreement on Monday, putting an end to the best part of a month’s worth of constant speculation.
The former club vice-captain will become Maurizio Sarri’s successor, more than two weeks after the Italian’s move to Juventus was confirmed.
Lampard arrives in time for the start of Chelsea’s pre-season campaign, which will give him a proper opportunity to assess his squad and the returning loanees.
A new era is set to begin at Stamford Bridge, with a club legend the face of it. There’ll scarcely be a Chelsea fan out there without a smile on their face when this is officially announced.
