Frank Lampard spent a number of years in the English Premier League with Chelsea and made his mark with a very terrific record in the Premiership until he moved to the MLS with Manchester City sister club, New York City and then came back on loan to Manchester City.
He officially returned to America at the start of the last MLS season but has struggled to settle and find his form due to a succession of calf and hamstring injuries.
Lampard has made just nine appearances, scoring three goals.
And reports are claiming that Manchester City have extended an open invitation to the 37-year-old to come train with them so he can get back to full fitness.
The legendary central midfielder has made it clear he will not return to England to play but may well take the opportunity to come back and get fit before the MLS resumes in March.
“I need the rest to be fully fit next year for the club,” he said.
“My aim now is to manage myself well for next season, to finish this season on a high, have some breaks at times, but keep ticking over, have a really good pre-season and throw everything into next year.”
Lampard will likely want to return to England to further his football career but it is very likely that he might not be coming back to play football but to join the backroom staff of any club that wants him, maybe Chelsea.
