Chelsea legend Frank Lampard could be set for an emotional return to Stamford Bridge in the second half of the season, after it emerged that Manchester City could extend his loan and keep him until February 2015, as reported by the Daily Express.
This would see him face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on January 31st.
Lampard has already had an impact against the club where he spent a significant segment of his career, scoring for City against them this weekend.
His equalizer took two points away from Chelsea, who, until that point, had put together a typical Jose Mourinho defensive masterclass.
The sending off of Pablo Zabaleta was a signal for the Stamford Bridge club to start attacking, and their pressure paid off with a sensational swooping counter attack, with Andre Schurrle bagging at the end of it.
However, Lampard latched on to an assist from James Milner to bag, earning his side a draw.
It has now emerged that Manuel Pellegrini is refusing to rule out an extension to Lampard’s loan, which would see him face Chelsea.
He said: “I can’t answer about that in this moment. Frank will stay until January because until January he doesn’t have anything to do in the United States because they are not working.
“In January, we will see what happens here and make a decision. It is not a problem in this moment.”
