Owner Roman Abramovic ‘has contacted’ Italian about making move to Chelsea
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic has reported contacted Max Allegri about a possible move to Stamford Bridge
Frank Lampard was handed a massive transfer kitty in the summer in order to revamp the squad and make this Chelsea side capable of winning that Premier League title ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
But despite some good performances from the Blues, Lampard has seen his job come under intense pressure over the past few months, as he simply cannot get the results that Abramovic would like, and Allegri is a manager that he is reportedly keen on.
Allegri left Juventus just a few seasons ago after leading the club to his fifth straight Seria A title, and has reportedly set his sights on making the move to the Premier League, with some reports even claiming that he is already learning English.
Now the SUN have claimed that Abramovic has started planning for life after Lampard and has already made contact with Allegri about a move to the Bridge, although the report also suggest that he will give Lampard some time before ousting the club legend.
The news comes just a few hours after Arsenal legend Paul Merson urged Chelsea to give Frank Lampard ‘a chance’ to prove himself.
Writing for Sky Sports, he said: “Lampard did a great job last year, and it’s the first time he has worked with world-class players.
“Give him a chance.”
As things stand, the Blues are ninth in the Premier League table after 17 games and that is not good enough with the amount of money the club spent, the player that they currently have and the backing that Lampard has recieved.
If the reports are true and Abramovic has contacted Allegri about a move t the Bridge, then it will be a very good decision to make as the Italian is one of the best managers in the game and certainly a man that can win trophies.
