Wow! Lampard has already decided to sell world class Chelsea player this summer, fans have been told!
Gary Neville believes Frank Lampard has already decided to sell Chelsea midfielder Jorginho this summer.
In the early months of the Premier League season, Jorginho become a main-stay in the Chelsea side and an invaluable member of the Blues side, but then the coronavirus stopped football from being played.
And since then, the midfielder has barley featured for the club, with Lampard even opting to start Scottish teenager Billy Gilmour in the game against Crystal Palace during the Tuesday night game, despite the midfielders dip in form.
Now, amid the speculation in the media suggesting that Jorginho could leave the club and head back to Seria A with Juventus, Pundit Neville suggests this was further evidence that Lampard is ready to offload Jorginho.
‘You have to think that he [Jorginho] is being managed out of Stamford Bridge,’ Manchester United legend Neville told Sky Sports.
‘I think it’s been clear from the moment Frank Lampard came in that he wants to build a young and hungry squad.
‘Look at the way David Luiz was let go. With the way Jorginho has been dealt with, it’s quite clear where Lampard wants to take the team.
‘When you think of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp over the last few years, they don’t veer away from the plan for any player. ‘Frank Lampard has got a clear plan.’
Lampard is a world class player that was brilliant for Chelsea in the early stages of the season, but we dont know the thinking of Lampard about the midfielder and he may have felt that he is in not the right shape to start games.
Yes there has been alot of speculation, but that is all there has been, speculation! if Lampard has decided to let Jorginho leave the club, it would be a mistake as the midfielder is quality and brings something to the side.
However, with the attackers linked with a move to the Bridge, he could be one player that Lampard could sacrifice in order to raise funds to complete their possible deals, so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
