Frank Lampard on verge of move to Major League Soccer

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is on the verge of agreeing to spend the final few years of his playing career in Major League Soccer with either Los Angeles Galaxy or New York City FC, according to a report this morning in Gazzetta dello Sport.

Lampard has failed to agree a contract extension with Chelsea and is now free to talk terms with any interested clubs in a bid to extend his career, although the 35-year-old is currently focused on international duty ahead of England's World Cup campaign.

The Blues are still hopeful of persuading Lampard to be a squad player at Stamford Bridge next season on reduced terms, but New York City FC in particular are hoping that a lucrative, multi-year deal will persuade the veteran to join David Villa in the Big Apple next year.

New York want one of Europe's most consistent midfielders over the last decade to begin spearhead their induction to Major League Soccer in 2015, a scenario that would allow Lampard to spend one more year with Chelsea after returning from Brazil.

LA Galaxy have other plans and hope to persuade Lampard that he should switch to California this summer, following in the footsteps of former England team-mate David Beckham.

Mourinho now faces a difficult decision over whether to persuade Lampard he should stay and fight for trophies in the Premier League next season, as the lure of switching to the States provides the box-to-box midfielder with options to ponder before heading to this summer's South American showpiece.
