Beckham asks Lampard to join LA Galaxy

December 31, 2011 - London

Ace midfielder David Beckham has urged Frank Lampard to join LA Galaxy.

Beckham spoke to the Chelsea star twice in the last 12 days about The Switch and told his former England pal that he would love the Lifestyle in California.

Lampard, 33, is frustrated with life at Chelsea under Andre Villas-Boas and is set to be on the bench again for today's home clash with Aston Villa.

Galaxy could match his 150,000 pounds-a-week Blues wages and the midfielder appears certain to move to America at some stage, The Sun reports.

He is now waiting on an offer from MLS championss Galaxy who are hoping Beckham snubs a move to Paris St Germain.

The former England skipper is leaning towards signing a one-year rolling deal in LA.

An MLS source revealed: "Galaxy have three designated players - Beckham, Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan, who is on loan at Everton. However, there could be a way around the rules so Lampard could also join."
