Stamford Bridge favourite Paris bound?
Frank Lampard off to France to join wealthy Paris club – and Wayne Rooney could follow
ENGLAND ace Frank Lampard is on the brink of joining a mega rich French club – who are also targeting Wayne Rooney.
The move to Paris Saint- Germain would reunite Lamps with ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian, now leading PSG backed by £37BILLION of Arab oil money, is also a huge fan of Rooney, said to be ready to leave Manchester United after falling out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Paris club is owned by the Qatar Investment Authority. They are looking at midfielder Lamps, 33, and striker Rooney, 26, as a winning combination. And the Wags are likely to be thrilled by the prospect of a place in Paris.
The players and their families would be offered apartments just off the ritzy Avenue Champs-Élysées.
Lampard, known to be unsettled at Chelsea under new boss André Villas-Boas, has 18 months left of his Stamford Bridge contract, which earns him £150,000 a week.

Talk of a Wayne Rooney move to PSG is fairly laughable given the recent public denial issued by both Man United and the England international following the story that emblazoned the front page of the Independent, but Carlo Ancelotti’s interest in Frank Lampard may just have some basis in reality.
There is no denying that the 33 year old Blues midfielder has found himself becoming a less central figure at the West London club he has served for a decade plus and the former West Ham man may feel the time is right to pursue a new challenge and Lampard did perform well under Ancelotti’s tutelage.
PSG can also offer the midfielder a lucrative contract and possibly a more likely regular first team place than Andre Villas-Boas, who is clearly looking to the future.
