Recently released Chelsea star Frank Lampard has agreed a switch to Manchester City’s MLS franchise New York City but he will play for another of their clubs in Australia before moving to the United States in March, reports the Daily Mirror.
Lampard and ex-Barcelona star David Villa are set to play in the A-league for Melbourne City until their new employers start the MLS season in March, and this could present some football fans in Australia a rare glimpse of one their star players.
Lampard, 36, decided to move on to a different adventure after nearly two decades at the highest level in England, 13 of which were spent with Premier League giants Chelsea. The switch to the MLS often represents the final foray for a number of European stars, and one could well see the ace midfielder bid goodbye to international football as well very soon.
The 106 times capped England international though is likely to be offered a coaching role in the future by his beloved Blues.
