Frank Lampard has held talks with Chelsea about returning to the club as manager, the Daily Mirror reports.

One of the fears people have for Frank is that he's taking over with the club in a bad way. "Frank knows Chelsea, he knows the players and the players will respect him". At 22-years-old, Moraes has the potential to become a great striker and he would undoubtedly be a major upgrade for the Toon up top.

Maurizio Sarri will likely remain at Chelsea as club chieftains commence last-minute effort to stop the Italian manager from leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.

Rafael Benitez may be on the brink of a sensational return to Chelsea.

Former Chelsea manager in consideration to replace Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, as hierarchy at Chelsea looking for a replacement.

"Rafa Benitez...? Are you joking #chelsea" posted one.

They are a tough bunch, the Chelsea supporters, and it wasn't the first time they have turned on a manager. "I don't think he would be fazed by big personalities in that changing room".

His arrival was met with boos and banners from fans and the hatred lasted all season, despite him leading the club to Europa League success, and he was replaced at the end of that season by Jose Mourinho.

The Blues manager is expected to be appointed as Massimiliano Allegri's successor at the Turin club and claims suggest the Brazil-born Italy global could follow his coach. There will only be more clarity on Chelsea's managerial position when Sarri's future gets decided. In a season when Sarri was implementing new ideas, integrating new players and competing with two of the best teams of the Premier League era, Chelsea finished third, made the League Cup final and won a European trophy.
