Will Frank decide to go?

Last updated : 17 June 2008 By Paul Lagan
Now that Chelsea have nailed their manager to a verbal contract, they can set their sights on the playing side.
Top of the list is sorting out Frank Lampard's Chelsea future.
Lamps. 30 next week, is in the last year of his deal with the Blues.
He can either sign a yet to be agreed new deal or he can transfered.
He could also let his contract wind down and he could walk away from SW6 without having to be transfered.
This is the problem Chelsea are in - do they cash in on him, a £8m fee will secure his services, or do they offer him what he wants which is a three-year extension to his current year at £130k a week?
Jose Mourinho, now at Inter Milan are talking tough claiming Lamps is their number one summer target.
But talking and making an offer are two different things.
Next on the to sort out front is Didier Drogba.
Now unlike Frank who says he wants to stay, Drogs has gone on record via French newspapers saying that he wants away.
However, he might find himself offered a new deal at the Bridge.
Kaka, Chelsea top target from AC Milan is staying in Italy according to his club.
There is no one on the international scene with Drogba's qualities. Without Kaka, Chelsea might decide that Drogba must stay. Nicolas Anelka has yet to justify his £18m staus as Drogba natural replacement which adds to the view that the Ivory Coast hitman might yet start the season in Chelsea Blue.
Also Drogba might just be realising that the grass is not greener on the other side, and Chelsea are well placed to meet his expectations of trophy success next season.

On the way out would appear to be Steve Sidwell, wity Aston Villa preparing a £5m bid for the midfielder. Claudio Pizzaro could well be put out on loan, especially if Droba stays. Another £5m offer will see Tal Ben-Haim end his torrid spell at Chelsea. Newcomers Stoke City and WBA are preparing to bid for the centre-back.
Right back Juliano Belletti, who fell foul to Avram Grant's selection policy could find himself back in favour. As one of Scolari's World Cup winning squad members, Bellitti might be the surprise package to survive the cull.
Those on the possible way out  list include aging Claude Makelele, left back Wayne Bridge, Florent Maluda, and Carlo Cudicini.
Loanee Kharlid Boulahrouz will be offered to Sevilla in Spain for another season.
