Man City chase Chelsea veteran Lampard - for Melbourne Heart

Manchester City's owners are moving for Chelsea veteran midfielder Frank Lampard. The Daily Star says Sheihk Mansour has sanctioned a move for Lampard.

But the deal is with Melbourne Heart, not Manchester City.

The super-rich Sheihk bought an 80 per cent stake in the A League club for £6.7m in January.

Lampard is out of contract at the end of the season and is already being courted by LA Galaxy.

Melbourne are offering £60,000 a week after tax for two years, with the option of a third year.

The 35-year-old, though, is hoping to secure another year's extension with the Blues and is unlikely to take up the Aussie option.
