Jose Mourinho is prepared to see Frank Lampard let go by Chelsea, it has been revealed.

The People says Roman Abramovich has ­arranged to meet Mourinho this week to discuss a possible return to Chelsea for The Special One.

Mourinho still rates Lampard highly but Abramovich has been adamant that there will be no new contract for a player who turns 35 this summer and is held partly responsible for the brevity of Villas-Boas’s reign at the Bridge.

The Special One would like Lampard to be offered a one-year deal but is unlikely to insist on it.
