Frank Lampard remained coy on his future after he helped Chelsea to acquire a stunning 8-0 victory over Aston Villa. The England international recently revealed he hadn’t engaged in talks with Chelsea over a contract extension as he wants to thoroughly review his options first.
From the looks of it Frank Lampard is eyeing a move abroad. Some media reports suggest Frank Lampard already has one foot out of the door. The 34-year-old is in the mix for a move to MLS. After David Beckham’s departure from the MLS, a void of stardom has been created.
Frank Lampard, who is the highest goal-scoring midfielder in the Premier League, would do well by replacing David Beckham at the LA Galaxy. Interest for Frank Lampard is also on the rise in China. Former teammates Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba are already spending the latter years of their football career with Chinese clubs.
The midfield veteran scored the fourth goal for Chelsea in his 500th Premier League start. Upon being questioned about all of the transfer rumors surrounding him, Frank Lampard claimed that presently he was focusing on bring Chelsea back into the title race.
“I'm not concentrating that far [ahead] because I am under contract here and I love playing here as everyone knows,” Frank Lampard told Sky Sports. “I am going to continue game by game and I'm just pleased to be fit and I really enjoyed today.
“I'll just keep trying to enjoying my football and I believe I have got a lot [left] in me so I will try and show that. The club's position is its position. I'm here to play football and show people what I can do.”
The attacking midfielder, who has a knack for scoring goals, scored his 130th Premier League goal for Chelsea against Aston Villa. This goal makes Frank Lampard the leading goal scorer for Chelsea in the top flight.
“It means I'm old,” Frank Lampard joked when he was asked to comment on his achievement. “No, it means a lot. I've been fortunate to play for a great club and the managers had team-mates around me.
“I'm very proud of that goals record, to beat a great man such as Bobby who is an absolute legend and a lovely bloke, it means everything.
“Coming across London is not always easy but they (the fans) have supported me from the first minute. I appreciate it. I try to play well for them.”
