Chelsea have a number of experienced players who are in the final year of their contracts and are expected to be free agents during the summer.
Chelsea have yet to agree terms for a new deal with the likes of Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud, with their contracts set to expire in July.
Blues boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he’s concerned about the situation and will at least try to get contracts that will keep them at the club until the season ends, even if it goes beyond the July 1 expiration date.
“It is still uncertain if and when play will get underway. We have big players [out of contract] so that’s something I’m obviously looking at very carefully,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“The ones who are out of contract here have been great servants for the club, and actually have a lot of feeling for the club.
“Of course they’ll be concerned about themselves, in terms of how training is now is and if the pre-season is a rush they’re going to have to make sure they’re alright.
“So it’s going to have to be something we have to look at, hopefully we can make that arrangement can be made so they can stay with us.
“I would love the squad to look as it has all season, but we’ll have to see how that works.”
