Or does it not really matter whether a football club is prepared to bung a few extra quid in your pay packet when you’re positively rolling in it anyway? The Daily Mirror report that desperate times call for desperate measures and the Blues, fearful of a certain Portuguese football manager in charge of Internazionale, have offered Frank Lampard a whacking great salary to stay at Stamford Bridge. Will it be enough to keep a roof over the midfielder’s head?
Frank Lampard has been offered a new £130,000- a-week contract by Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge club made the offer in a desperate bid to keep the England midfielder.
The new deal would put the 29-year-old’s pay on a par with John Terry’s, although the Chelsea captain has a longer contract.
Ultimately, while money talks in some instances, Lamps might have already made his mind up to leave London and join his old chum Mourinho in Italy. He’s been at Chelsea for a good few seasons and, after winning the Premier League a couple of times and featuring in a Champions League final, a change of scenery might be required at this stage of his career.
