The Liverpool game's penalty shot was pretty amazing. Lampard deserves to have that as the best. Nice dedication to his mom. That goal really helped us out in winning. NICE NICE NICE!

From The Times May 20, 2008<h1 class="heading">Frank Lampard transfer claims stun Chelsea</h1>

Chelsea's preparations for the Champions League final were disrupted yesterday by reports from Italy that Frank Lampard would quit the club after the game to take up a four-year contract with Inter Milan. Confirmation from Uefa that Lubos Michel, the referee who allowed Luis García's infamous “ghost goal” in the semi-final defeat by Liverpool three years ago, will be in charge against Manchester United tomorrow evening provided a further source of irritation.

Senior officials at Chelsea reacted with surprise and anger that fresh speculation about Lampard, 29, had surfaced just 48 hours before the biggest match in the club's history and Peter Kenyon, the chief executive, placed an immediate call to Roman Abramovich, the owner, to ensure that no deal had taken place without his knowledge. An investigation has been launched to discover whether an agent is falsely claiming to represent Chelsea in transfer business, so strong was the word from Milan that a transfer was on the verge of completion.

Sources in Milan were happy to provide details of a salary - approximately £5.8 million a year - and a length of contract for the Lampard transfer, yet Chelsea claimed that there had been no contact between the clubs, while Steve Kutner, the England midfield player's agent, insisted that no decision would be made on his future until later in the summer, after talks with Chelsea.

Lampard's contract has one year to run and it may be that if he cannot reach agreement on an extended deal, he will be sold rather than allowed to leave on a free transfer, but Kutner said that word of an imminent move to Milan was wrong.

“There is no truth in it at all,” Kutner said. “I don't know why Inter Milan would think this. Nobody has talked to me and I am good friends with the owner, Massimo Moratti. I took Paul Ince there, I took Patrick Vieira there - if there was something on I am sure I would know.

“The situation is that Frank has got a massive match on Wednesday, after which he needs to spend time with his family, because he has not had a real opportunity to do that since his mother died. He needs to get away and sort out his personal life and when he has done that we will sit down and talk about his future in football.

“After that we will talk to Chelsea and that is as far as we have got - there is nothing in the pipeline and I don't know why this has surfaced now.”

The speculation could not have come at a worse time for Chelsea, with so much uncertainty around important players going into the club's first Champions League final. Didier Drogba is a target for AC Milan and there is still no final word on whether Avram Grant, the first-team coach, will be in charge next season.

Lampard's departure seemed a perfect fit with increasing indications that he would be reunited with José Mourinho, Grant's predecessor, if he went to Inter. Mourinho expects to open talks with Moratti next week and is favoured to replace Roberto Mancini as coach. Although preliminary terms have not been agreed, his appointment is increasingly regarded as a matter of when, rather than if.

Chelsea reacted with stoicism to Michel's appointment, though there is little doubt that they would have preferred another referee, for superstitious reasons if nothing else. Chelsea have not won a match officiated by the Slovak, who also took charge of their 1-0 defeat to Werder Bremen in last season's group stage.

Chelsea will train at the Luzhniki Stadium this evening, with the final place in their starting XI still up for grabs. It is a straight fight between Florent Malouda and Salomon Kalou. Grant is leaning towards picking Malouda for his greater experience - the France winger has started all Chelsea's Champions League away matches this season - though a final decision could be delayed until tomorrow afternoon.

The club have rubbished this, along with his agent this morning, according to Radio 5 live.

Also Reuters:

“There is no truth in it at all. I don’t know why Inter Milan would think this. Nobody has talked to me and I am good friends with the owner, Massimo Moratti. I took Paul Ince there, I took Patrick Vieira there - if there was something on I am sure I would know. The situation is that Frank [Lampard] has got a massive match on Wednesday, after which he needs to spend time with his family, because he has not had a real opportunity to do that since his mother died. He needs to get away and sort out his personal life and when he has done that we will sit down and talk about his future in football.” - Lampard’s agent, Steve Kutner

Well there have been rumours about wet head going to Real Madrid in the last couple of days. The reason it is more focused on Chelsea is because Drogba has never quashed rumours that he will leave Chelsea and actually fuels speculation, I'm quite certain Lampard is going, its been on the cards for ages and Chelsea's inability to tie him to a contract is fueling this one. No idea where the Carvalho story came from, he's going no where.

Frank Lampard says he will sort out his contract situation at Chelsea immediately after tonight's Champions League final.

Lampard said: "I'm very happy at Chelsea, it's been the best days of my career.

"My future will be sorted out in the summer, myself and the club have said we want to speak about my contract in the summer. Now is not the time to think about that.

"I say it time and time again that it will be sorted out in the summer.

"Myself and the club have said we want to speak about my contract in the summer.

"Now is not the time. I want my mind completely on the game tomorrow. After that we can deal with it."

The situation regarding Inter was made even more clear by spokesman Simon Greenberg, who added: "Can I be clear from the club's perspective. As regards Inter Milan, there has been no contact and no offers and we're not interested. "Frank's representatives have said the same. Let's just put that to bed."

Lamps to reopen contract talks

Chelsea midfielder 'confident' of agreeing a new contract

Frank Lampard is 'pretty confident' of agreeing a new contract with Chelsea as he looks to reopen talks after England's forthcoming friendly internationals.

Quarter_Finals_Frank_Lampard_Chelsea_Cha

Lampard has been linked with a move to Internazionale, although his agent has been quick to reject those rumours.

Speaking after Wednesday's dramatic UEFA Champions League final defeat to Manchester United, the 29-year-old has revealed that he will conduct discussions following England's games against USA and Trinidad and Tobago on 28th May and 1st June respectively.

Conclusion

"I have got to talk to the club," said Lampard. "My contract has obviously been the last thing on my mind in the last six weeks, but I will sit down and talk with them after the England games.

"I hope we can come to a conclusion. I am pretty confident we can. I have said that many times before."

On the disappointment of Chelsea's loss to United, he added: "At the end of the day what is important is that the club moves forward whatever happens with the personnel. We've given it everything this year and it wasn't quite to be.

"But the strength of a club is how you return when you have that little knock back."

Skysports

Good to hear - he's come out and said it in public, just the news I've been waiting for.

I am not at all worried about Frank leaving, he will stay and more than likely finish his playing days with us.

Amen to that.

Saw the interview and must say that one could feel the sincerity in Lampsy's voice.
