Blues’ legend Lampard is expected to be announced as the new Chelsea manager, following Maurizio Sarri’s departure for Serie A giants Juventus two weeks ago.

Derby confirmed earlier today that they have given their boss permission to speak to Chelsea over the vacant manager’s role at Stamford Bridge: 

Derby County Football Club can confirm that they have granted permission for Chelsea Football Club to speak to Frank Lampard about the vacant managerial position at Stamford Bridge.
 With pre-season fast approaching for both clubs it is hoped this will allow Chelsea to swiftly conclude their discussions.
 The club will make no further comment until it is appropriate to do so.

And, as per the aforementioned update from Sky Germany, Lampard’s coaching staff may already be beginning to take shape.

This comes amid claims that Michael Ballack, former Chelsea teammate of the tactician, is being considered as Lampard’s assistant for next season.

German legend Ballack is currently in the process of acquiring his UEFA B coaching licence in Wales.
