Lampard, who has played nearly 600 times for the Blues, had been hoping to see out his career at Stamford Bridge but in a bold move, owner Roman Abramovich has told him to find a new club in the January transfer window. The 34-year-old is currently contracted to Chelsea until the end of the season, and although he had been seeking talks over an extension he will instead be made available for a free transfer in the new year.According to The Sun, the news has left Lampard ‘distraught’, with a source explaining that it came as a total shock to the England midfielder. ‘Frank is absolutely distraught,’ said the source. ‘He wants to keep playing for Chelsea but they’ve told him to find another club in the January transfer window. ‘He can’t believe it. All he wants to do is play for Chelsea. ‘This club means everything to him.’ It is thought that Lampard will now take time to evaluate his options, but a move to MLS side LA Galaxy is already on the cards despite Manchester United, Arsenal, West Ham and QPR already being rumoured to be interested in his signature.
