Frank Lampard will be offered the chance to extend his career in Australia and the USA if he accepts an offer from Manchester City to play for the club’s franchise in New York.

Lampard has left Chelsea after being released by coach Jose Mourinho and is weighing up his options beyond this month’s World Cup with England.

City would like him to join Spanish international David Villa as a marquee player at the newly formed New York City FC, a prospect that appeals to the England midfielder.
