Chinese £250k a week for Lamps


LONDON – Frank Lampard will be offered a Chinese takeaway of £250 000 a week after tax.

The England midfielder is wanted by former Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba’s club Shanghai Shenhua, as well as their Chinese Super League rivals Beijing Guoan.

And both are ready to offer that mega-bucks £1 million-a-month jackpot.  Lampard (34) can talk to any club in the world in January, as he will be a free agent next summer when his Blues contract finishes.

He appears on his way out at Stamford Bridge after 11 years, as Chelsea have a policy of offering players over 30 only a one-year extension to their current deal.

Lamps could bank around £36m from a three-year stint in China with Drogba and company.

But, already financially secure for life, he has always told pals he is more interested in a challenge than money.

Sunsport also exclusively revealed that David Beckham’s LA Galaxy are interested in Lampard — as an eventual successor to 38-year-old Becks. -Sun
