Blues legend wanted Stamford Bridge stay
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has revealed that he wanted to stay at the club this summer before eventually ending up at Manchester City, according to the Sun.
The 36-year-old is currently on loan at City from MLS franchise New York City FC, but has explained that he was ready to extend his 13-year stay at Stamford Bridge.
“I would have obviously stayed if Chelsea had offered me another year,” he said. “There was no reason for me to leave. Yes, I wanted to play a bit more regularly but I’m not stupid. If Chelsea had given me a new contract it would have been mad not to take it at the time.”
