I kind of noticed most of you probably guessed that I was gonna report about Lampard leaving the club soon. But no, this is different. This does not only concern him, it concerns the players who stayed in the club since Jose left back in 2007. It concerns the type of players who we always watched when we grew up as a chelsea fan.
Ashley Cole confirmed a few weeks ago that he would not be signing a contract and that he will be moving on after 8 amazing years. Now, its Frank. According to latest I should say rumour:
BOOM -Frank Lampard has agreed a free transfer to New York City FC – and Atletico Madrid marksman David Villa is set to join him.

Lampard was an idol to me, a football icon. I grew up watching players like him score amazing goals and contribute so much to the club. Its hard to see players who have done so much for the club for so many years, leave at a time like this. Its when you get attached to things but find hard to let it go.
And yes, Lampard’s leaving as I have just confirmed, he will not be getting a contract.
Frank Lampard leaves the club, having made 648 apperances (3rd all time highest appearance for Chelsea), 211 goals( Club’s highest goalscorer). Here is a link to all of his goals for the club.
The saddest day in football for me. Who knows how long Cech and Terry will last?
