Lampard eyes up MLS.
Frank Lampard refused to rule out a future move to Major League Soccer following Chelsea’s draw with Paris St Germain on Sunday evening.
Lampard was spotted in Los Angeles earlier this summer, where he was with former England team-mate David Beckham, who is already plying a successful trade in America.
A move to LA alongside Beckham is reported to be on the cards, and Lampard admits that he may look at that – but not until next year.
“I have another year on my contract at Chelsea. We have a big season. We play in the Super Cup and the World Club Championship in December. Then it’s up to Chelsea,” he told reporters after the PSG match in New York.
“If they want to speak with me about my future, then I’ll speak with them. I wouldn’t rule anything out at the moment.”

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is considering a move to the States after being inspired by former teammate David Beckham’s success.
The Blues midfielder would not rule out a move to America and is open to offers. The 34-year-old England international was spotted recently at LA Galaxy watching a game. He sat with Becks, as he was serving a one match ban and the two appeared to be talking business.
AEG president Tim Leiweke told the Daily Mail ‘I’m a fan of Frank’s. I think he’s a great player. When I think of Chelsea, I think of Frank Lampard…’ ‘It took us two years to get David to come here the first time.’ ‘We’re working on the next [Designated Player], and we’ll continue to work on the next DP. There are a half-dozen guys we have a good relationship with, and we’ll see how that goes. But first we’ve got to have a spot, and at the moment we don’t have a spot.’
Lampard has one year left on his £130,000 a week contract and is in line for a huge loyalty bonus once completed. His place in the squad is going to get much harder to keep with club boss Roberto Di Matteo looking to rejuvenate the squad, so 2014 could see another Premiership player crossing the Atlantic in search of a new club.
