The Daily Mail speculates that Chelsea star Frank Lampard could leave Stamford Bridge this summer for as little as £5 million should he and his potential suitors FC Barcelona decide to exploit a new transfer law formulated by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
According to this new law, a player can leave his club should he pay them the remainder of his contract. This rule has led to speculation on many players leaving their clubs, including Spurs’ Dimitar Berbatov. And now the arrow has been directed towards Chelsea.
Lampard has just one more year to his contract after the end of this season and has also reportedly turned down a new offer by Chelsea. Lampard’s wife Elen is a Catalan and hails from Barcelona and Lampard may be seduced to pack his bags for sunny Spain and Barcelona both for sporting reasons and familial matters.
