New York City FC Star Frank Lampard Inks Loan Deal With Manchester City
New York City FC midfielder, Frank Lampard, 36, will join English Premier League champions Manchester City in a six-month loan deal in order for the Chelsea legend to maintain fitness levels prior to the awaited advent of New York City FC’s inaugural campaign in the Major League Soccer 2015 season.
Lampard rejected a loan option to play for Australian A-League giants Melbourne City from New York City FC in greater preference to the allure of competing in UEFA Champions League action with Manchester City in the 2014-15 season, alongside remaining on the radar of England Head Coach, Roy Hodgson, as the FIFA European Championships 2016 Qualifiers begin next month.
An intricate clause requested in Lampard’s loan deal with Manchester City states that the England maestro cannot perform against former team Chelsea; Lampard spent 13 successful seasons at Stamford Bridge (2001-2014).
