Frank Lampard Set for a Contract Extension?

Frank Lampard has been one of the consistent players in the world over the last decade. He is an epitome of what could be achieved when hard work and quality are combined into one package. Lampard is adored by Chelsea fans despite his West Ham connections, which said a lot about the professionalism, quality, and dedication of the man.

Naturally, it did not come as a surprise to many when they learnt that Chelsea may allow Lampard to leave the club at the end of the season.

According to the Telegraph, Lampard has agreed a one-year extension to his contract and he will be signing after the Europa League final.

“I hope to be here next year. The club have always been great to me and hopefully that can happen.” – Lampard

The 34-year-old only has a few more weeks left on his contract. It is widely expected that José Mourinho will come to Stamford Bridge in the summer. Mourinho and Lampard are extremely close to each other. It would be tough to see the 50-year-old Portuguese not demanding the presence of Lampard in the squad next season.

One should take the report from Telegraph with a pinch of salt due to a couple of reasons.

Lampard is extremely close to journalist Ian McGarry. He said a couple of days ago on Twitter that Chelsea have not yet offered a new deal.

If Chelsea were interested in keeping him, this offer would have arrived ages ago and not when he has only a few weeks left on his current deal. He recently broke Bobby Tambling’s record of 202 goals for Chelsea FC.

I can only see Lampard having a similar fate as Drogba. However, I would be the happiest person in the world to be proved wrong.

Do you think Lamps will stay?

  1. He deserve to be given even more than two years, he is putting good influence in a club he has tried to show the club fans that he can maintain constant performance, he a good penalty taker compare to all players in Chelsea, he has high rate of scoring yet he is a midfielder, according to me Lampard should be given another 3 year contract in chelsea its good to keep players who have experience in football, good example is GIGGS in man u, he can remain there even if not playing but to keep around advising players, giving them ideas, which can be even to side of chelsea, thats all to me hoping all chelsea fans we love lampard, i will never for get the match between chelsea and Aston vila, he was man of the match. why do you keep Torres and you chess Lampard ?
