This is only an Adrian Durham idea (i.e a flight of fancy) - but the more I think of it, it might just make sense. Apparently the signs are Frank Lampard is increasingly unhappy with his diminishing role at Chelsea and may be looking to leave (possibly even in January) If he's looking to stay in England, then he'd want a top club - I don't think he'd be motivated by money and I think he's still best mates with Rio. That would put us as strong contenders. At his age, he wouldn't be the longterm solution - but he'd be EXACTLY the player we need at the moment, and would allow Sir Alex time to line up the next longterm solution. I don't think it will happen - but I can see the logic in suggesting the possibility.
