It would come as huge shock for Chelsea fans as club legend Frank Lampard, who was released a couple of weeks before by the London side, has finally ended speculations surrounding his future by agreeing to move to MLS clb New York City in the summer. Atletico Madrid‘s David Villa is also set to follow Lampard in his footsteps and would join the American cub. Both the players were present in Mnachester City‘s Carrington training complex to agree the formalities of their deals

Chelsea’s way of dealing with players above 30 years had been a potential stumbling block for Lampard, who could have been offered a year contract extension, but the 35 year old has finally decided to pursue the twilight of his career elsewhere. Ashley Cole was also released by the Blues, the left back is also in search of a new club. Club captain John Terry however signed a one year extension while there were reports from Spain a couple of days ago that number one choice goalkeeper Petr Cech would also be put on sale by the club.

Lampard and Villa met with Jason Kreis, New York City Head Coach back in January by the Premier League champions’ Chief Executive Officer Ferran Soriano. Lampard broke off from his preparations with England for the World Cup to sort out his move.

The Mirror reports: Lampard is understood to be have agreed to a basic wage significantly less than the £150,000-a-week that he picked up at Chelsea. That pay packet is expected to be boosted substantially by bonuses however with the England midfielder’s signing a massive coup.
