Chelsea fans are walking over to our landlord here in the Football Transfer Tavern after it was made clear that Frank Lamaprd’s future at the club could be in doubt – well according to the Daily Mail.
The long serving midfielder has been in negotiations with Chelsea this summer over a new one-year deal and we thought that he would be following in the footsteps of John Terry in committing his future to the club.
However it turns out that unlike JT, Lampard is not too keen on the new deal on offer.
Like with Terry, the Chelsea board expect Lampard to take a pay cut and according to our punters, this is more than fair.
Given the lack of contribution Lamps has made this season – especially in comparison to the one Terry managed, we think that Lampard should be grateful he is getting anything at all.
Jose Mourinho likes and trusts Lampard and not only wants him to stay on as a player but also eventually work his way into the coaching side of things at Stamford Bridge.
Do you think Lampard should man up and take a pay cut to stay at Chelsea for the rest of his career? Let us know your thoughts below.
