The former England midfielder has already signed an extension option to his current loan deal at the Etihad on a salary that dwarfs the best wages he ever earned at Chelsea.

Lampard’s final deal with Chelsea saw him picking up a very healthy £151,000-per-week, but his decision to move to New York City FC saw him collect a 35% pay increase as they join MLS from next season.

The American club is owned by Manchester City chief Sheikh Mansour and Lampard had been due to start his career in the States in January.

His current deal with City expires on 7 January, but he has already penned an extension to see him through until the end of the season.

With Yaya Toure heading off for the African Cup of Nations in January, manager Manuel Pellegrini has taken up the option to keep him to have him provide cover for the absent Ivorian.
