AS says sources close to Lampard and also Chelsea have confirmed he is now up for sale and can leave Stamford Bridge in January for £12 million. However, with just over 18 months on his existing contract, Lampard can invoke FIFA's article 17 law which would allow him to move for £8 million in January and around £6 million at the end of this season.

Lampard's agent, Steve Kutner, is reported to have been contacted by Juventus, Milan and also a representative of Real Madrid.
