Stamford Bridge stalwart set to make surprise Etihad Stadium switch.
Frank Lampard is to sign a short term loan deal to play for Manchester City, according to the Guardian.
After the expiry of his Chelsea contract at the end of the season, the 36 year-old signed for incoming Major League Soccer franchise New York City FC.
With the next MLS season only beginning in March 2015, Lampard won’t be able to play a game for NYCFC for the next seven months, and clearly wants to maintain his fitness and play at a high standard.
New York City FC and Australian A-League side Melbourne FC are owned by Man City, so it was perhaps logical that Lampard would sign for one of the latter two sides.
Having not yet informed England manager Roy Hodgson of a decision on his international future, Lampard could yet prove his ability to still perform in one of the best domestic divisions in the world in the English Premier League – and in the UEFA Champions League.
