FRANK LAMPARD is assessing his Chelsea squad on their pre-season tour as he prepares for a massive test at Man Utd on the opening weekend.
The Blues cannot make any new additions due to their transfer ban, but they may still splash out on future signings…
Follow ALL of the latest Blues news, updates and gossip below…
CHELSEA are planning to sign Wilfried Zaha for £60m once their transfer ban finishes.
The Blues have a two-window transfer ban but are willing to pay up now to ensure the winger arrives next summer.
And that deal may suit Crystal Palace better than offers from Everton and Arsenal, as it would allow them to keep their Ivorian talisman for a further year.
FORMER CHELSEA stars Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata have both had an impact on helping Kieran Trippier settle and adapt to life in Spain.
The former Spurs star completed a £20million move to Atletico Madrid last month and he's discussed his start in La Liga with his new club's official website.
He said: “I have played against some of these players in the Premier League – players like Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa have made me feel at home. Some try speak in English with me and I try to speak in Spanish.
“I am very excited to be here, in an incredible team with an amazing coach and I am willing to learn.”
N'GOLO KANTE is set to hand Frank Lampard a huge boost by being fit for Chelsea's Premier League game at Manchester United.
Fears the midfielder would be absent with a knee problem emerged over the weekend, when he was sent home early from the Blues' tour of Asia.
But Chelsea have confirmed that he could return to full training as early as this week.
FORMER Chelsea defender Todd Kane is being chased by Queens Park Rangers, Wigan and Middlesbrough, according to Football Insider.
The 25-year-old is available for free after his contract with the Blues ended earlier this summer.
He joined Chelsea back in 2011 but after eight years at Stamford Bridge, he failed to make a senior appearance and had loan spells at Bristol, Oxford, and Hull.
CHELSEA legend Didier Drogba has shared a brilliant Instagram snap from his playing days at Stamford Bridge with John Terry, Petr Cech, and Jose Mourinho.
