Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has revealed that he could return to the club in the future as he prepares for life with New York City FC in the MLS, Daily Star reports.
The 37-year-old spent the current campaign on-loan at Manchester City, but is now ready to link up with his new teammates in the United States.
Although he angered quite a few Blues supporters when he decided to play for their Premier League rivals, he admitted that he could one day return to Stamford Bridge.
“I’ll always keep my season ticket at Chelsea though and if they want me back in any capacity…” he said.
Like other former Premier League players that moved to the MLS, Lampard may accept a loan move during the off-season to return and train with his former side.
He also admitted that this was the right time to continue his career elsewhere and is looking forward to the upcoming challenges.
“It feels the right time to be leaving the Premier League.
“This will be a big challenge — a different challenge. I’m going to a new country and a new club which is a test in itself.”
The former England international featured for City in 32 matches over the course of the campaign, starting 10 and coming on as a substitute a further 22 times, scoring six goals.
