The England international may now be 35 years old, however, the west London club’s head coach Jose Mourinho is said to want to keep Lampard at the Blues next season, with the self-styled Special One understood to greatly value the player’s experience and professionalism.

And as a result, the Portuguese is now set to reward the player with a one-year rolling deal until the summer of 2015, when it is expected that Lampard will finally decide to hand up his boots and call it a day.

However, Lampard has already started his coaching badges and it is thought that he will remain at the club in a coaching capacity after retiring, but the Chelsea future of his compatriots John Terry and Ashley Cole are not so certain though.

Chelsea skipper Terry will be handed only a one-year contract this summer, however, the defender is after  two-year deal, while Cole is set to leave the Bridge after falling out of favour under Mou this season.
