Lampard to join Premier League champions before MLS begins
Former Chelsea star could face the Blues twice in City colours
Frank Lampard is set to sign a short-term deal with Manchester City. The former Chelsea midfielder has agreed to join Citys Major League Soccer team, New York City, but they will not begin playing until March.
Lampard rejected the chance to play in Melbourne at Citys other new venture and, although Queens Park Rangers appeared to be leading the chase for his signature, the 36-year-old favours a spell with Manuel Pellegrinis side.
