Juventus confident beating Barcelona for Chelsea's Lampard

Juventus remain confident of seeing off competition from Barcelona for unsettled Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

While reports suggest Lampard favours relocating to Spain to be close to wife Elena's family, Corriere dello Sport says Juve coach Claudio Ranieri's friendship with the midfielder and sports director Alessio Secco's good relationship with his agent have the deal in the Italians' favour.

However, Lampard's £4 million-plus a year contract demands are proving a stumbling block, as is Elena's preference to return home to Barcelona.
