Rumour: Frank Lampard joining LA Galaxy
An apparent tentative agreement has been reached between Frank Lampard and the LA that would see the English superstar replacing David Beckham as the face of the Galaxy.
The 34-year old midfielder has a wealth of experience for both club and country, netting 24 goals in 148 games for West Ham United, then after a short loan to Swansea City he spent the majority of his career up to this point with Chelsea Football Club amassing 133 goals in 388 games for The Blues. He also has 93 senior caps for England where he put away another 26 goals.
Having played in Euro, Champions League, and World Cup tournaments, Lampard has one of the most impressive resumes of any active player the world over.
With David Beckham moving on from LA after back-to-back MLS Cup victories, the Galaxy are eager to bring in a big name replacement to their side. Chelsea have made it clear that after a 12 year relationship they would not be extending any new offers to Lampard after his contract expires in June. Despite his age, Lampard has had a terrific campaign so far in 2012/13 scoring 7 goals in 14 games from his position in midfield.
