Lampard this week has continued to impress and moved joint second in Chelsea’s all time scorers list – an astonishing feat for a midfielder. All of this prompted a display of devotion on instagram from John Terry. The Chelsea captain called for the number 8 shirt to be retired and claimed he was ‘heartbroken’ at claims that Lampard would leave.
Whilst Rafael Benitez and Chelsea did not seem particularly impressed, it has now been hinted that the club are willing to negotiate a new deal with the player but they will have to move fast with Lazio President Claudio Lotito claiming: “I do not say anything, but just that when we seek a player, normally we take it …”
Chelsea will have to move fast in deciding whether to stick with the midfielder or ship him out.
