The Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has become the latest high-profile player to be linked with a move to the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
Even though there have been numerous reports suggesting that the Chinese club could be going under the radar due to the problems in the background, they have reportedly made an offer of around £ 1 million in wages for the Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard. The 34-year-old Frank Lampard is coming to the end of his career. He has previously stated that he would like to end his career at Chelsea, but if not offer the opportunity, then he is willing to look at other alternatives like the MLS.
However, the Chelsea players Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka have started the new trend of moving to China in order to make the most out of the final payday. Due to the fact that Chelsea are reluctant to offer a long-term contract for Frank Lampard, he could finally decided to quit Stamford bridge after more than 11 years at the club. The former West Ham United midfielder was £ 11 million signing back in 2001. He has become one of the best players at the club during this period.
He has won every major title with Chelsea including Premier league titles and one Champions League title last season. The future of the England international has been thrown into doubt due to the policy by Chelsea of not offering contracts of more than a year for players older than 30. Despite being 34 years of age, Frank Lampard still continues to play an important role for the England national team. Hence, many have suggested that it would be extremely bad on the part of Chelsea to let the midfielder leave the club after his immense contribution in various ways over the years.
