Lampard´s agent slams talk of Inter move (SN)

Frank Lampard's agent insists there is no truth in reports the Chelsea midfielder is set to join Inter Milan after the Champions League final.

Reports in Italy claim Lampard, 29, is ready to quit Stamford Bridge rather than extend his contract, which expires in 2009.

Lampard, who is preparing to face Manchester United on Wednesday, has yet to agree a new deal with Chelsea. And Inter, who could be managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho next season, are keen to sign the England star.

But agent Steve Kutner said: “I don't know why Inter Milan would think this. Nobody has talked to me and I am good friends with the owner, Massimo Moratti.

“I took Paul Ince there, I took Patrick Vieira there – if there was something on, I am sure I would know.

“The situation is that Frank has got a massive match on Wednesday, after which he needs to spend time with his family, because he has not had a real opportunity to do that since his mother died.

“He needs to get away and sort out his personal life and when he has done that we will sit down and talk about his future in football.

“After that, we will talk to Chelsea and that is as far as we have got – there is nothing in the pipeline and I don't know why this has surfaced now.”
