David Beckham is urging Chelsea ace Frank Lampard to join LA Galaxy.

The Sun says Becks spoke to the Chelsea star twice in the last 12 days about the switch.

They met at The Sun's Military Awards on December 19, then at a restaurant in Harrods.

And Becks told his former England pal he would love the lifestyle out in California.

Galaxy could match his £150,000-a-week Blues wages and the midfielder appears certain to move to America at some stage.
