Frank Lampard has admitted his glittering Chelsea career could be drawing to a close after revealing he was not in talks with the club over a new contract.
England midfielder Lampard appeared resigned to his fate after helping the Blues into the Club World Cup final in Yokohama, saying: "Maybe things don't last forever."
The 34-year-old, whose 11 years' service and third place in the club's all-time list of scorers has seen him become a legend there, said: "There have been no talks about anything about an extension."
