Sort out Frank Lampard’s contract

How a player of Frank Lampard’s quality and importance can be allowed to leave on a free is a baffling question.

But, that is the state of play at Chelsea, with the England international’s future far from certain. From a financial standpoint, a 34-year-old on vast wages isn’t ideal, but with Lampard’s status within the squad and continued high level of performance on pitch makes a contract extension a no brainer.

With his love for the club, the midfielder would probably accept a wage cut to stay put, making a deal a must for the West Londoners.
