As new players begin to arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer with Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner both being confirmed, we could see some high profile players leave the club as a result.
Frank Lampard has a clear plan and he will be sticking to it.
That is the view of Sky Sports pundit and former Manchester United defender Gary Neville anyway.
Neville believes that Blues midfielder Jorginho is ‘being managed out of Stamford Bridge’ and his fate is set already, as Lampard looks to build a young squad.
The Chelsea boss chose to start 19-year old Billy Gilmour over Jorginho last night, even when he had injuries to both Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante.
The Italian international only got the last 10-15 minutes on the pitch at the end of the game when he finally came on and kicked his first ball for Chelsea since football restarted.
It really does seem quite significant.
As per The Express, Neville said:
“You have to think that he [Jorginho] is being managed out of Stamford Bridge.
“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.”
