Lampard camp denies China move

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will not be joining mega-rich Chinese outfit Guizhou Renhe in the summer despite reports from the club that he has agreed to the transfer, reports the Daily Mail.

The club, formerly based in Shanghai before moving to Guizhou in 2012, reported on their website that the 34-year-old had agreed to the move and would be made their club captain, but a source from China has indicated that the deal is now off the table.


The source said: “The contract offered to Lampard was amazing and he would have been treated like a God out there. It would have been a great adventure for him. But although there were a lot of talks, he would never give a definite ‘yes’ and a couple of weeks ago Guizhou Renhe finally gave up.


The contract offer was reportedly in the region of £250,00 per week, which equates to approximately £13m per year for the England international, and could have led to him joining former Chelsea teammates Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka in the country as they both now play for Shanghai Shenhua.


Lampard becomes a free agent in the summer when his contract at Stamford Bridge expires, and has been linked with moves to the likes of LA Galaxy, Juventus, Monaco, Lazio, Fiorentina and Manchester United.


He currently enjoys legendary status among the fans at Stamford Bridge, having scored 133 goals in 387 competitive games for the club since joining from West Ham in 2001 for £11m.
