Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is confident that his players will stay even if they fail to make the Champions League next season.
Chelsea has seen the likes of Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard leave the club in recent summer transfer windows but Lampard does not fear to lose the likes of N’Golo Kante should his side fail to secure a top-four berth and says they want to add top names to the squad.
Lampard said, “We obviously want to keep our top players, Kante is an incredible player and everyone knows that.
That would be case by case, individual by individual. At the end of the day, no matter the quality of the player, you want players that want to be here at Chelsea and want to push and push and close the gap upwards that we have at the moment.
“That’s a question for the summer and something I certainly shouldn’t be dwelling on now.
We want to keep our top players and in fact want to be adding to that to try and improve as all top clubs do.
“Chelsea will entertain Bayern Munich at the Stamford Bridge in the Champions League.
