Lampard will not be short of offers when he leaves Chelsea at the end of the season and it has now been revealed that Chinese outfit Guizhou Renhe were ready to break the bank to land him.
Reports claimed they were ready to offer him a two-year deal worth £250,000 a week but Lampard would not commit and Guizhou dropped their interest and signed Bayern Munich star Zvjezdan Misimovic instead.
“The contract offered to Lampard was amazing and he would have been treated like a God out there,” a Chinese source has been quoted as saying in the Sun. “It would have been a great adventure for him.
“But although there were a lot of talks, he would never give a definite ‘yes’ and a couple of weeks ago Guizhou Renhe finally gave up.”
Manchester United are favourites to land him on a free transfer at the end of the season but a move to the MLS with LA Galaxy cannot be completely ruled out.
