LA Galaxy to offer Frank Lampard the same wage as David Beckham

December 30, 2012

LA Galaxy will offer Frank Lampard the same wage packet as David Beckham in a bid to lure the Chelsea star to the MLS. 

The England midfielder could earn $6.5million a year — equal to £4million — plus a potential $1million (£619,000) in merchandise sales. 

A source said: “The club feel Frank is what they’re missing now David has left. 

“He has the profile to fill Beckham’s role as the face of the club globally.” 

Frank, 34, is mulling over his next move after being told by London side Chelsea to find another club. 

Despite helping the Blues to the Champions League, three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups, he was told he can go from January 1. 

If he accepts a contract with LA Galaxy, it will make him the highest-earning player in the US league. 

Former Spurs ace Robbie Keane, 32, is the Galaxy’s current highest player on $3.5million dollars (£2.1million). 

Ex-Arsenal favourite Thierry Henry, 35, is the second highest-earning player in the MLS on $5.5million (£3.4million). 

A California move could be an exciting new start for Lampard’s fiancee Christine Bleakley. 

The Dancing on Ice host, 33, got engaged to Frank last year. 

She has told pals she is confident she could start a new career Stateside.
