New York City FC have scheduled a press conference for Thursday at 10:30 a.m. to announce their latest “major player signing” and all signs point to that new signing being English star Frank Lampard.
Goal USA is reporting the Lampard to NYC FC deal as completed, with the long-time Chelsea sensation set to make close to $8 million a season, as he joins David Villa on the expansion team’s squad, which begins play in MLS in 2015.
The Goal USA report also speculated that Lampard could join Villa in taking part in a short loan with Australian club Melbourne City later this year to retain his fitness heading into the 2015 MLS season.
What do you think of this development? See NYC FC enjoying success in year one? Think $8 million is too much for the 36-year-old midfielder?
