Chelsea Will Offer Lampard New One-Year Contract: Soccer Roundup

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable Internet links.

Lampard Offer

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will be offered a new one-year contract after weeks of talks with the club, the Daily Express reported.

Lampard, 34, has told friends that he expects to be at the London team next season amid speculation that he may move to the Los Angeles Galaxy in the U.S., the newspaper added.

Carragher Replacement

Liverpool is seeking to sign Brazilian defender Douglas on a free transfer as a replacement for Jamie Carragher, who is retiring, the Daily Mail reported.

The 25-year-old’s contract with Dutch club FC Twente expires after this season, the newspaper said. Newcastle bid 4 million pounds ($6.2 million) for him last year, the Mail added.

Brazilian View

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fernandinho, who has a 42.5 million-pound release clause in his contract, wants to join Manchester City to improve his chances of making Brazil’s 2014 World Cup squad, the Sun reported.

“My exposure would be better,” the Sun cited Fernandinho as saying. Playing for City “would help me get back in the Brazilian national team,” he added.

Redknapp’s Riches

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp, who was hired on a salary of 3 million pounds a year, said he doesn’t mind taking a pay cut when the club drops from the Premier League at the end of the season because he doesn’t need the money, the Daily Mirror reported.

“I don’t have to go to work really, it’s because I want to,” the Mirror cited Redknapp as saying. “I’ve got too much money to worry about that.”
