Frank Lampard has refused to rule out this being his final season at Chelsea.
Lampard, who joined the Blues in 2001, is entering the last year of his contract and has been heavily linked with a move to Los Angeles Galaxy.
The 34-year-old England midfielder has previously expressed his desire to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge but suggested today he had yet to open talks with the club over his future.
State of the game: Frank Lampard has been linked with a move to the MLS
After captaining Chelsea in their pre-season friendly against Paris St Germain on Sunday, the first football match ever at the new Yankee Stadium, Lampard was asked about a potential move to Major League Soccer.
'I'm not sure,' said the man who captained the Blues to Champions League glory in May. 'I have another year on my contract at Chelsea.
'We have a big season. We play in the Super Cup and the World Club Championship in December. Then it's up to Chelsea. If they want to speak with me about my future, then I'll speak with them.
'I wouldn't rule anything out at the moment.'
Pressed on whether he was on his way to America, Lampard replied: 'Not at the moment, no, because I have a contract with Chelsea. Beyond that, I don't know.'
Lampard is already ensured legendary status at Chelsea thanks to the goals he has scored and the trophies he has lifted while at the club.
