Chelsea does 'wow' shopping in the summer. Many new players entered, including expensive ones, such as Kai Havertz (72 million pounds), Timo Werner (47.7 million pounds), Ben Chilwell (45.1 million pounds).
All of this cannot be separated from the actions of Marina Granovskaia, a Chelsea official whose responsibility at the London club is in transferring players.
What is interesting then is, referring to The Athletic's report which was reported by Caught Offside, "Ben Chilwell is the only Chelsea signing in the summer who is really the target of Lampard."

Another player who was brought in by Chelsea in the summer market was indicated as a player who is the target of the board of directors, in this case Marina Granovskaia.
This adds to the news that the relationship between Frank Lampard and Marina Granovskaia at Chelsea is not harmonious . In fact, it is this inadequacy that is said to have made Lampard finally have to be willing to leave.
Previously, Marina Granovskaia was also said to have asked Frank Lampard to keep giving Kepa Arrizabalaga, the most expensive player in Chelsea history, the opportunity to become the main goalkeeper.
This was not well received by Lampard, who then insisted that Chelsea bring in Edouard Mendy. In the end Mendy did come, but the seeds of Frank Lampard vs Marina Granovskaia were sown. Moreover, it is said that Marina Granovskaia had to step in directly to foster Kepa's confidence after Mendy arrived.
Until finally, still referring to The Athletic's report quoted by the Daily Mail, on Monday (25/1) yesterday morning, Frank Lampard was in the city of Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck to come to the morning meeting at 09.00.
It was at that meeting that Bruce Buck told Lampard that he was fired as manager. The meeting, which reportedly took place in a gloomy tone was also attended by Marina Granovskaia. Frank Lampard was also reportedly unable to say good-bye to Chelsea players at the Cobham training center in the afternoon.
