Lampard to start contract talks


Mod

Recommended Posts

Let's hope it's sorted.

Midfielder Frank Lampard says he will hold talks over a new deal with Chelsea when he returns from England duty.

England play the United States on 28 May and Trinidad and Tobago on 1 June.

"I have got to talk to the club," said 29-year-old Lampard, who has been linked with a move to Inter Milan and whose current deal expires next summer.

"My contract has obviously been the last thing on my mind in the last six weeks but I will sit down and talk with them after the England games."

Lampard had to build up to Wednesday's Champions League final against Manchester United, which the Blues lost on penalties, while grieving for his mother, who died in April.

Chelsea also lost out to United in the battle for the Premier League title but Lampard has emerged with a great deal of credit for the way he has conducted himself.

He and the club postponed negotiations over a new deal until the end of the season and now Lampard expects the two parties to reach an agreement that will keep him at Stamford Bridge.

"I hope we can come to a conclusion," he added. "I am pretty confident we can. I have said that many times before."

Welcome home Alan.

This is the sort of news we need, just wish he'd do it before the Internationals.

Come on Frank, the club, don't let each other get away because of both of your damands.

SO here's my question: Is it realistic that we would offer him a 4 year contract seeing as he is almost 30? There are certainly many midfielders who play into their mid 30's (Maka the current example), but should a player, in the future, still be earning 100k a week, even if that player is Franks Lampard?

Look, in my eyes the bloke is a legend, and I will be sad to see him go if he were to; however, it raises the eternal question of, is it better to burn out than fade away?

I think that the club may offer him a 4 year deal, but giving that he'll be 33 when the contract is up, they will structure the wage somehow. Therefore, I think someone like Inter may offer him an unstructered wage deal, and he will leave Chelsea while still held in great esteem in all our hearts

Any updates on Frank's situation?

he's probably still on holiday somewhere

with the announcement of scolari , i'm sure lamps will decide his future soon enough,

maybe a few phone calls to the chelsea lads in the portugese squad will add some weight in him staying

Spot on mate.. Been a tough year and family time (his young children) has been few and far between.. I am sure he has shut off somewhere and good for him !

When he returns.. and Scolari starts.. July.. then I am sure Frank wants to meet the new manager for a chat before he makes his final decission.

Oddly enough, if we had won the Champions League he would have consider a new challenge while he can, but as we haven't then.. I reckon he will stay.

According to the papers (I know) - Scolari has told CFC to "break the bank" for Frank, he may want new players, but he knows we have our gems here already.

i like that,

lamps as an average of 20 goals a season, theres top strikers that dont have that average

if lamps played for another club, roman would want to buy him

so why not give him an extra few quid a week

I think Lampard is ace, easily one of my favourite Chelsea players.

And yet I'm at the point now where if he goes, I don't think it'll bother me too much. How long have his contact talks been going on for now? I can't see why he's left it over a year before signing a new deal.

In the same respect though, I'd respect his decision to leave; re-united with Jose who he got on really well with, having a new challenge and maybe a better chance of winning the Champion's League?

im at the same point blizeh. if he stays, wonderful. we get more fantstic service from a player who will go down as a chelsea legend. if he leaves, we appreciate the job he did for us and move on. either way, hes been a fantastic signing, and has done better than anyone expected.

Mega-Angebot für Lampard

Der FC Chelsea London hat seinem Mittelfeldstar Frank Lampard einenMega-Vertrag bis 2013 angeboten.

Wie der "Daily Express" enthüllt, soll Lampard ab der Saison 2009/10 190.000 Euro pro Woche verdienen. Der 30-Jährige würde damit in den vier Jahren 50 Millionen Euro erhalten. Das macht Lampard zum derzeit bestbezahlten Kicker auf der Insel.

Lampards Zusage steht noch aus: Der Mittelfeld-Akteur wird von

Inter Mailand mit seinem Ex-Coach Jose Mourinho umworben.

If he keeps scoring like he did in China, then I see no reason why we should be rid of him. Nobody in the world can even approach his goal scoring ability in the advanced central midfield position.

The fact that his game isnt reliant on speed, and he has never been an injury concern over any long term tells me that he would be a good bet for a longterm contract into his 30s. My concern comes over the fact that, maybe, his position on the pitch can be better filled by a player that would get more out of his teammates. Thats no knock against Frank, just a statement of fact that he is first and foremost a goal-getter
