Could Lampard really be on his way out of Chelsea !?!?!?

Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard could be set for a summer switch to Italian giants Juventus according to Gazzetta dello Sport. The paper reports that Juventus Sports Chief Executive, Alissio Secco, was to fly into London today to meet with Chelsea officials to try and muster up a deal for Lampard.

Lampard who, in my view hasn't really played as well as he did last season, has had a rough time in recent weeks and months being booed by his own international supporters in the games against Germany and Estonia, but could he really be set for a move away from Stamford Bridge. It would be a real shame in my view if he were to leave England for Italy.

Lampard has been one of the best, if not the best midfielders in recent years in the Premier League and it would be a real shame to see him leave. Secco, says he is confident he can sign the player for a fee of around 7 million pounds, a fee that I think totally under values such a talented player.

Secco did admit that Lampard would have to take a pay cut to join Juve, but he was confident he could convince him to join. Lampard was said to be disappointed at the recent departure of former boss Jose Mourinho and that may lead to him deciding to take this offer and join the Italians. Another factor that may lead to his departure is the fact his contract is set to expire in 2009.
