Well, well, Frank Lampard is very popular at the moment. We’ve already had the links to LA Galaxy, fuelled no doubt by his trip over there and now we’re hearing he’s been offered £230,000-a-week by an unnamed Chinese club.
We’ve already seen Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba head to Shanghai Shenhua for handsome salaries, so could Lampard be the next Chelsea player on their list? Lampard is alleed to have already turned down the deal and personally, I’d have to say that at 34 years of age, despite spells on the bench last season under Andre Villas Boas last season and looking likely to be off this summer, I still can’t see Lampard going anywhere for at least another year. Chelsea currently have $6.00 odds to win the 2012/13 EPL. (Betting odds courtesy of TAB Sportsbet, based off 25/07/12.)
