After having scored his eighth goal in eight games, the future of Frank Lampard is once again the subject of much speculation.

Whilst rumours continue to link him with a move to Spain, following Mourinho to Madrid if the tabloids are to be believed, another destination has now been suggested.

Indeed, with Lampard having yet to secure his long term future at Chelsea, sources continue to remind us that for a fee of approximately £8 million, Lampard could be moving on this summer.

The latest (preposterous) suggestion is that Lampard could well be joining David Beckham in America.

According to a leading tabloid, a likely destination could be Chicago with Frank playing for Chicago Fire.

Previous rules that prevented exorbitant wages being paid are slowly being eased aside as the Major League Soccer seeks to establish itself as a leading sport in America.

Significantly, the tabloid uses the fact that Beckham and Lampard are contracted to the sportswear giant Adidas who also sponsor all thirteen teams in the Major Soccer League as evidence to substantiate there story.

Chicago is of course known as the windy city; co-incidentally we here at Vital Chelsea believe this whole suggestion of Lampard going to America this early in his career is also a load of wind, probably of the anal variety!
