According to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, Chelsea let him go in 2014 to accommodate Cesc Fabregas.
Fabregas signed for Chelsea from Barcelona back in 2014 – the same year Lampard parted company with Chelsea after 13 years at the club.
Speaking about the 2014 transfer, Lampard told BT Sport: “We never played together! They let me go to get Cesc in.
“Me and Cesc never really got on well on the pitch so they didn’t think we could share a dressing room.”
