According to a newspaper report that quotes a Stamford Bridge insider, Frank Lampard has been told by Chelsea that he won’t be a part of the club’s future. Despite making his 500th league appearance start last week where he celebrated with a goal, the Chelsea veteran has been told that he’ll be sold in the January transfer window.
Personally, I hope the story isn’t true. I would love to see Frank Lampard continue playing for Chelsea even if it’s in an occasional role coming off the bench. The ideal end to Lampard’s career would be to retire at Chelsea either at the end of this season or possibly next year.
