Barcelona rule out Lampard

04 Jun 2007 - 10:31:37

Barcelona have played down talk of a major summer move to sign Chelsea's England midfield ace Frank Lampard.

Both Barca and Italian giants Juventus had been linked with approaches for Lampard, who is still holding out on putting pen to paper on a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

However, Camp Nou sporting director Txiki Beguiristain believes that Barca already have enough midfield options at their disposal.

He told Sky Sports News: "I think Lampard is an extraordinary player characterised by his shots on goal and the number of goals he scores.

"But when you look at our squad we are currently really well catered for in that department.

"We have got players like Deco, Xavi and Iniesta who have similar characteristics as well as amazing control of the ball.

"At the moment we are really happy with our trio of midfielders. So as things stand there really isn't space for another player of this type."
