Derby wants £4m in compensation from Chelsea for Lampard

Derby will demand £4m in compensation if Chelsea are to take Frank Lampard as their new manager – though there is a clause in his contract which allows him to move.

Sky Sports News reports that Chelsea are yet to make a formal approach, but Derby are bracing themselves for that to happen now that an agreement has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to take over at Juventus.

While Chelsea and Juventus have agreed the details of Sarri’s move to Turin, he will not be confirmed until the Premier League club have finalised plans for his replacement, who they hope will be Lampard.

Sarri, who guided Chelsea to a third-place finish in the Premier League and a Europa League win, will complete a return to Italy after a single season in English football.
