"Chelsea are under a transfer ban so their hierarchy is thinking If Benitez can do what he's done with #NUFC's squad, then imagine what he could do with this current Chelsea squad... then once the transfer ban lifts, Benitez can win us the UCL".

Former Chelsea manager in consideration to replace Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, as hierarchy at Chelsea looking for a replacement.

"He is the ideal choice". "I will actually be surprised if they look elsewhere".

"Because he and Jody (Morris, Derby assistant manager) they know all the kids from 16 upwards".

However, it is understood that Chelsea want to lock in their new manager before releasing Sarri to Juve.

"Or are you going with someone who the fans will love to have back".

Tiffany Ortiz also thanked fans for "the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time". The Red Sox retired Ortiz's No. 34 in 2017, and Boston renamed a bridge and a stretch of road outside Fenway Park in his honor.

There continues to be speculation over who will take over as Chelsea manager if Maurizio Sarri leaves for Juventus.

The newspaper say this could count against Derby manager Frank Lampard given the Blues legend's relative inexperience.

"If Chelsea are going to get a ban transfer-wise I don't think they can look anywhere but Frank if I'm honest".

"Chelsea have had the best young kids in the country for a while now - Man City are coming around that but for the good years they have had the best kids and none of them get in the first team. He changed many things", Fabregas said.

During his first reign at the club, the Spanish born tactician was not a popular figure with Blues fans due to the fierce rivalry he had with Jose Mourinho, while he was at the club. People talk about experience but what experience did Pep [Guardiola] have when he went into [the] Barcelona first team? He trained the younger kids at the club. "I don't think he would go in there and be phased by big personalities in that changing room".

Sources close to the Stamford Bridge outfit have also played down the likelihood of Benitez returning to the club, which takes another potential landing spot off the table if June 30 arrives without the gaffer putting pen to paper and committing his future to the Magpies.
