Exclusive: Rejuvenated Abramovich to go 'all in' with Lampard's Chelsea

Roman Abramovich is ready to go 'all in' at Chelsea after becoming reinvigorated by the work of manager Frank Lampard.

Tribalfootball.com has been told the Blues owner is excited by what Lampard has achieved with the club's young players - and particularly the transformation the club's reputation and profile has undergone this season.

As Jody Morris, Lampard's No2, declared last week: "We're almost becoming a lot of people's favourite second team now because of the amount of young English players that have been getting opportunities."

Such impressions have also reached Abramovich, who is enjoying seeing his club now admired and revered around the world. So much so that intermediaries have told Tribalfootball.com they've been informed to be ready for a "big summer" at Chelsea.

Abramovich has his enthusiasm back for the club and claims of selling up are now off the table.

Indeed, plans for the new stadium could also be back on track. Abramovich and his team now have less than eight weeks to confirm Chelsea's Stamford Bridge rebuild before the planning permission expires.
