Barcelona confident of deal for Chelsea's Lampard

Barcelona have revived their bid for Frank Lampard - with plans to land the Chelsea midfielder during the January market.

The News of the World says Barca vice-president Albert Vicens Rahola is playing a key role in the discussions.

Lampard's Barcelona-born fiancee Elen Rives is desperate to return to her homeland after we caught Lampard, 29, enjoying a night out with a mystery brunette in Las Vegas three weeks ago.

A family friend claimed Elen, also 29, is in need of a fresh start and revealed: "Elen and he have been rowing like cat and dog behind closed doors."
