Recently signed New York City FC midfielder Frank Lampard made his name by scoring 211 goals over a 13-year career in the famous Chelsea blue.
However, with his new side, New York City FC set to debut in 2015, the 36-year-old midfielder looks like he will be heading back to the Premier League, albeit in a different shade of blue.
Lampard is reportedly set to sign to sign a short-term deal with NYCFC’s sister club, Manchester City. Man City will reportedly register Lampard for both their Premier League and Champions League rosters. Though not clear yet, the deal is likely through the end of December, where Lampard would take a short break before joining NYCFC for preseason training.
Neither NYC FC or Manchester City have publicly commented yet on a potential loan move for Lampard.
The England international reportedly rejected moves to fellow sister club Melbourne City FC, where he would have joined fellow NYCFC star David Villa, as well as EPL side Queens Park Rangers. Lampard is expected to have a deal completed in the near future with the team aiming to have the midfielder training with the team prior to the Aug. 10 Community Shield matchup with Arsenal.
What do you think of the potential move? Is moving to Man City a better for for Lampard than a move to Melbourne?
