Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard career seems to extend at Stamford Bridge beyond next month and into another season as there is willingness from the club to offer him a one-year extension, once the new manager Jose Mourinho is likely to place in next season.
On the one year deal I believe that the pay scale of the midfielder will be same as it was before. The announcement of the new extended contract will be made after the end of this season and it is most likely to occur when the new manager arrives. The leader candidate for the manager post is Jose Mourinho who naturally supports any deal made over Frank Lampard career at Stamford Bridge. It is also believed that Mourinho will discuss over the contract extension of Frank Lampard at his first press conference.
Recently Mourinho in a TV interview said Chelsea as his special club and said, “I want to be there, where people love me to be”. If Lampard’s contract is extended by one year then it is likely to break the record 202 goal of Bobby Tambling. Lampard is just one goal short to reach the record of Bobby Tambling. He scored his 200th goal with Chelsea in the match against West ham united and after a goal drought of 6 games he finally scored his 201st goal in the match against Swansea city through penalty.
Earlier his contract extension was refused by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. But he had shown some interest in this midfielder at a press conference and likely to extend his contract. If he had not reviewed over his contract the Lampard has only six matches to make a record. He is not included in the starting XI of Chelsea in match with FC Basel at the second leg of Europa League as Rafael Benitez is rotating the squad and giving chance to other players.
Like Lampard Chelsea captain John Terry’s contract will end by the end of next season. And as Terry said he won’t play with any other English club other than Chelsea, these both legends are likely to retire at the same time next season.
