Three will replace Yokohoma from the start of the next season after 5 years of partnership with the club. Chelsea’s deal with Three is expected to be in the region of £40m.
Despite a brilliant start, Chelsea have been struggling off late. However, manager Frank Lampard has already said that the club will not make any panic signings.
“I don’t want to make some kneejerk reaction to say: ‘Here’s my first big signing’ because we couldn’t sign anyone in the summer. No, I want to do the right thing for the club.
“That’s why if I do it I’ll try to consider all things. Hopefully it’s the best thing for us. Whether that’s more of a short-term option or a long-term option, we’ll also have to consider,” Lampard said last week.
