New Blues boss Rafa Benitez has said he expects Lampard and defender Ashley Cole to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of next season.

Current Ligue 2 leaders Monaco are thought to be keen on signing Lampard as they target a revival following relegation the season before last, while Chinese side Guizhou Renhe and MLS club LA Galaxy have also been linked.

Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri took the England international to Chelsea from West Ham in 2001 and is thought to be keen on a reunion with the 34-year-old.

However, Monaco have played down reported interest, with a club official telling L'Equipe: "There is nothing concrete."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
