Chelsea veteran Frank Lampard would have agreed to terms on a move to LA Galaxy at the end of the season, says soccerway.
The MLS side appear to have won the race against Premier League clubs such as Man United or Everton. An LA Galaxy spokesman would not confirm or deny the news, only telling that head coach Bruce Arena publicly acknowledged interest in Lampard on Thursday.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if over the next week or so, we’re going to have some kind of decision we’re going to make with a Designated Player,” Arena told reporters.
“We wouldn’t rule (a move for Lampard) out. It’s always a possibility.”
During Chelsea’s tour in the States last summer, Lampard expressed an interest in playing in Major League Soccer but admitted that he would wait to see if Chelsea would extend his contract first.
“I am not sure (about a future in MLS),” Lampard said at the time.
“I have another year on my contract at Chelsea and we have a big season ahead of us with the Super Cup and the Club World Cup in December. It’s up to Chelsea to speak with me about my future and, at that time, I’ll speak with them.
“I wouldn’t rule anything out at the moment.”
