Chelsea to open contract talks with record-breaker Frank Lampard
Chelsea’s smash-and-grab against Aston Villa will forever be remembered as the day Frank Lampard finally broke Bobby Tambling’s long-held goal-scoring record, with the veteran midfielder now standing on his own atop the club’s scoring charts. The Mirror report that the club have finally come to their senses and are about to hand the 34 year old a new contract rather than letting him leave the club this summer. And, the player himself reiterated that he has no desire to leave Stamford Bridge: “I hope I will be here.”

Isco has no shortage of admirers in the Premier League but Man City appear to be the only ones willing to part with the release clause of £27m, thus making them favourites to land the 21 year old attacker.
