Chelsea to hire new manager Lampard on the cheap

Chelsea are set to hire new manager Frank Lampard on the cheap.

The Blues are ready to appoint Derby boss Lampard as their new manager on a £16.5million three-year contract - but the Blues hero won't be among the Premier League's highest earning coaches, says The Sun.

Manuel Pellegrini arrived at West Ham with the remit of revitalising a club with its sights on Europe and, as such, was handed a £7m pay packet.

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl agreed a £6m wage before keeping the Saints in the Premier League.

Arsenal coach Unai Emery is also on a £6m salary, off the pace of his top-four competitors.

And after impressing as Manchester United interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was put on a £7.5m contract for three years with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp understood to be on the same amount.
