Derby County manager Frank Lampard has given Chelsea two conditions to meet before he signs a contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

The report in Sky Sports News says that the former Chelsea star is seeking assurance about owner Roman Abramovich’s expectations for the coming season and the club’s plan once FIFA's transfer ban is over.

The report also reveals what transpired between Lampard and Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia ‘asked Lampard about his lack of experience as a manager, his vision for the club, and whether he would look to give opportunities to Chelsea’s younger players’.

Lampard also said to have told Abramovich that he does not expect any special treatment and that he wants to be judged by results on the pitch.

The Chelsea hero didn’t ask for guarantees to be given time to make an impact when he signs for the West London based club, Lampard will be Chelsea’s fourth manager in less than four years.

Negotiations over the financial terms and length of Lampard’s contract were relatively easy to agree, Sky has also been told.

Former PSV Eindhoven manager Philip Cocu is expected to replace Lampard at Derby County.
