Chelsea face shock Lampard loss

Blues icon could team up with Beckham's LA Galaxy

Chelsea star Frank Lampard could team up with his former England team-mate David Beckham in the USA’s Major League Soccer.

LA Galaxy are ready to make a fresh bid to lure Lampard away from Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.

The club believe they can put together an offer that can make it worth Lampard’s while to move to the USA, even though the midfield player has one year left on a £130,000-a-week Chelsea contract and is due a substantial loyalty bonus if he completes the final year of his deal, it said.

Lampard, 34, has become an iconic player at the club since moving there in 2001. He has won the Champions League, three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups in the club’s most successful era.

But last season Lampard was largely used from the bench that was until Roberto Di Matteo was made permanent manager last month.

Chelsea could be eyeing Luka Modric as a possible replacement though Tottenham have put a £45 million price tag on the Croatia playmaker.
