Frank Lampard expects to be at Chelsea next season despite speculation linking the England midfielder with a move to Spain.
The 27-year-old still has two years remaining on his existing contract but has seen discussions on a new deal with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy stall in recent weeks.
However, the former West Ham United midfielder insists he is looking forward to a summer holiday before attempting to prise the Premier League trophy back from newly-crowned champions Manchester United next season.
Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move for the England star, who cost the Blues £11million from West Ham six years ago.
He said: "I am looking forward to a summer. It's been a very long season. The last few seasons have all been long.
"I've got a clear month now and I am looking forward to resting a lot.
"I've felt tired at different stages of my career. Sometimes you feel tired at Christmas when you are bogged down with games.
"It's just a matter of resting at the right times and now I've got a good summer.
"But I am looking forward to a good season with Chelsea where we want to win the league next year.
"It is important we come back firing and do that."
