Frank Lampard has left New York City FC, but he might not be leaving MLS.
The English midfield legend announced his departure from NYCFC on Monday, sparking speculation that he was set to call time on his illustrious playing career. But a new English tabloid report claims that Lampard is the subject of interest from two other MLS clubs.
According to the Mirror, the 38-year-old is on the radar of both the LA Galaxy and Orlando City SC, and may also receive offers from unnamed European clubs.
The Galaxy bid farewell to veterans Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard this week, while Orlando will be led by Brazilian playmaker Kaká for at least one more season as they move into their new, soccer-specific home in 2017. Playing primarily a central attacking midfield role, Gerrard bagged 12 goals and 3 assists in 19 games (15 starts) for NYCFC this season.
The report states that Lampard may yet elect to hang up his cleats and move into another phase of the game, with his longtime club Chelsea FC ready to offer him a coaching or ambassador-type role.
