UK Back Pages: Manchester City Make Shocking Move for Frank Lampard

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterAugust 1, 2014


Chelsea legend Frank Lampard's somewhat shocking rumoured loan move to Manchester City dominates Saturday's back pages. 

Lampard, who moved to Major League Soccer outfit New York City FC, will apparently go on loan to Chelsea rival Manchester City until officially joining the new MLS side in March. Manchester City co-own NYCFC along with Major League Baseball's New York Yankees. 

Jimmy Anderson's escaping of punishment from an incident with Ravindra Jadeja is also in the headlines. 

The Mirror simply runs with the headline, "Frank is back."

The Star's package is very similar.

The Express instead chose to focus on Anderson's escape, with a bold "Shove it" headline.
