Lampard admits that he would be confident of becoming the club’s all-time top scorer if he could extend his stay beyond this final year of his contract.
He told The Sun: “If I could play on with Chelsea for another few years and go on to break that record, it would be one of my proudest achievements. There is a bit of a new look at Chelsea — it’s something that people were saying had to be done for the last couple of years because we had a so-called old team.
“This club is always looking to regenerate and bring in younger players. It’s something the Chelsea fans want to see and there’s no better time to do it than when you’ve just won the Champions League.
“It shows that we’re not messing about and the owner has demonstrated his desire to get a fresh new team. No club can stagnate and not bring in new players.
“You can’t keep trying with the same players, even though we’ve had huge success.
“If you do that, you find yourself stuck in a corner where you don’t want to be.”
