Chelsea star Lampard: Inter Milan move was close
The England midfielder shared a close relationship with Jose Mourinho and was tempted to follow the Portuguese to the San Siro 18 months ago.
Lampard eventually signed a new five-year contract worth £150,000 a week at Stamford Bridge and, as he prepares to face Mourinho's Inter in the Champions League, says he now can't imagine playing for anyone else.
"At the time, if I am honest about it, I did have thoughts about going to Inter," Lampard told Chelsea TV.
"It was a difficult time for me in my life, things had happened for me personally and everybody knows how I feel about Jose Mourinho."
"I am very pleased now that I can finish my career here and looking back I would have hated to have left after a few years having done well but not done the whole package. Now hopefully I can do that."
