'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Far Eastern Offer?

The rumour mill has clicked into motion with regards to a possible transfer for Frank Lampard, come next summer.

One leading red-top publication is inferring that Lampard is a top target for two Chinese clubs - Shanghai Shenhua and Beijing Guoan.

Both Chinese clubs are looking to offer Lampard a contract that would see the midfielder clear a cool 250,000 a week, which means that Frank, if he is tempted, could earn a cool 36 million over a three year contract.

The red-top also goes on to comment that, already being financially secure, it isn`t money that drives Frank on but a challenge.

Therefore, we have to ask whether a move to the Far East, joining Anelka and Drobga in a Chelsea exodus, is the sort of challenge 34 year-old Frank is looking for!

Your opinions please!

He's got a young family settled here, I really can't see Frank leaving them if I'm honest.

A staggering offer if it's true. From Frank's perspective, he's already very rich. He doesn't need the money; then again, it would be difficult to turn it down. It would be a shame to see him retire with any club other than CFC, but his days as a regular starter appear to be over. I'd like to see him sign a one-year deal on less pay (he is 34, after all) and go from there. Retire with us, Frank.

sportsmen don't have much of a career after retirement. if true, he probably will take it, and rightly so. He's achieved everything in club football (unlike ickle steve) However, I still think he has a lot to offer for us. He is a symbol and every one looks up to him. You can't buy that status and the effect it has on a club.

I think he should take it since he will not be getting the more than 2season contract he is looking for at chelsea.
