Lampard to Join Citeh?
When it was officially announced that Frank Lampard had joined New York City the question was always going to be asked what our record scorer would do with himself between now and Marc 2015 when the MLS actually starts.
It had been suggested that Frank might sign up for Melbourne, in the Aussie League but the sheer distance put the kybosh on that move. It was also promoted that Frank might wile away the time by training down at Cobham but it seems that theory was wide of the mark as well.
Instead, it now appears that Frank is set to continue in the Premier League with our title rivals Manchester City. Apparently the City boss, Manuel Pellegrini, is pretty confident that Lampard will sign a loan deal that will see him become a Manchester City player until early in the New Year.
For City it represents a decent signing, Lampard is English, he`s experienced and fits perfectly the criteria for the Premier League and Champions League squad.
However, if Lampard is to sign on the dotted line it represents something of a U-turn with it having been indicated previously that Frank had no desire to sign for another English side after such a successful Chelsea career. But it seems that if Frank does sign for Manchester City, albeit on a temporary basis, the inference is that he WILL NOT play for City when they play Chelsea.
So, what are your views?
Is it a good move for Frank, a good signing for City or should it simply never have been allowed to happen?
