Frank Lampard's possible MLS move just makes complete sense

No matter what way you think about Frank Lampard's possible move to the MLS after the World Cup, the idea of him going to New York City just makes complete sense.

The fact that Lampard is still in the England squad is quite remarkable, and a testament to the player himself for keeping in good shape.

He may not have played too many games in the past two seasons, and his play may have dropped off a little, but he's still a threat at any level of football.

But the soon-to-be 36-year-old certainly won't be playing in the EPL for Chelsea next season that's for sure, after he and the club agreed to not extend his contract.

Currently, the goal machine midfielder is a free agent, and he will weigh up his options after he attempts to help England win the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

Now we can't guarantee a competitive World Cup for Lampard and England, but we can guarantee that Lampard will decide his future after the tournament in the heat of South America.

And after England's final whistle blows, his attention will be turned to North America and the newest MLS venture, New York City. That particular team have signed David Villa for the 2015 season, starting in January, and Lampard has been in talks about joining the former Barcelona great.

But does it make sense for Lampard to move to the MLS?

Well, simply put, the more and more you think about it, his decision just has to be yes to the offer.

Now we know he could easily play in the EPL next season, and he would still be a key player week in week out for a team like his old side West Ham.

But whether the 36-year-old would really want to get involved with all the hustle and bustle of the EPL again is doubtful, and a niece 6-month break before a US adventure would surely be so more appealing to Lampard.

It's also an opportunity for him to win more silverware and play and live in one of the most glorious cities in the world. Opportunities to work in places like New York don't come up very often, even for football players.

And with a teammate like Villa - and New York City owners that also own Manchester City - Lampard would be playing for a team that would ultimately be very completive.

This New York City team will get plenty of money pumped into it that's for sure, and for Lampard this could and should mean a glorious twilight chapter of his career in the MLS.
