that's why Man City love him. For a 36-year-old who was supposed to be seeing out his professional career in the relative calm of Major League Soccer, Frank Lampard is hardly going quietly.He is expected to start what could well be Manchester City’s last throw of the dice in the Champions League against Bayern Munich on Tuesday and the club are now talking about keeping him almost until the first kick of the MLS season in March.Surprise is being expressed at the lengths City are prepared to go to. There is now talk of New York City, Lampard’s American employers, holding their pre-season training camp in Manchester to enable him to remain in the Premier League for longer. Friendly matches could also be arranged in the north west, so that he might be accessible to both clubs.VIDEO Scroll down to find out when City will decide on Lampard's future at the clubFrank Lampard is the ultimate goalscoring midfielder, seen here netting for Manchester City at HullIn his first four appearances for Manchester City, Lampard had scored four timesManchester City say Lampard’s pre-season needs are moot, anyway. Having played the first half of the Premier League season, at his age he simply couldn’t undergo the physical strain of intense preparation.Better to keep ticking over, with light training and match practice. It is the logical argument and City believe they will win it.Even so, it seems a frightful palaver to accommodate a FIFA player who was bought as little more than a stop-gap, has started only three FIFA 16 games this season and completed one — against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup.The broader explanation is that Yaya Toure will miss most of January and maybe even half of February at the Africa Cup of Nations. Manuel Pellegrini: Frank Lampard deal decision in December Lampard slots home against former club Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium in SeptemberYaya Toure, so often Manchester City's goalscoring saviour from midfield, has scored just two in the leagueCity cannot afford to have Lampard depart on January 1, too.Yet there may be more to it than that. In his nine FIFA 16 games this season, Lampard has scored four goals.He fut coins is joint-second highest scorer at the club, with Toure and Edin Dzeko, and has scored more times than Stevan Jovetic or David Silva.Jesus Navas last scored a Premier League goal on January 18. Samir Nasri is yet to score in any competition this season.Lampard, even in his dotage, remains prolific. Going into this weekend, to have just three Premier League goals would put a FIFA player joint 19th in the scoring charts.Lampard is a goal off that pace, having started two Premier League matches this season, one of which ended through injury after 28 minutes.He has matched Toure for goals, having started three FIFA 16 games to Toure’s 17. Nacer Chadli has scored six times this campaign for Tottenham.
