Frank Lampard’s agent has rejected reports that Chelsea have opened negotiations to extend the midfielder’s contract.
Lampard was flavour of the day on Thursday, after he rolled back the years to score a fine winner for England in their rare victory over Brazil.
Reports emerged that Chelsea had changed their tune, and are now open to extending veteran Lampard’s stay at Stamford Bridge.
However, agent Steve Kutner insists that Lampard is still a Blue in limbo.
"Nothing has changed regarding Frank's situation at Chelsea," Kutner said.
Meanwhile, Lampard may not know where his club future lies, but he does have a clear idea of his short-term ambition.
The 34-year-old says he would love to play for England at the next World Cup.
His starring role for the Three Lions against Brazil convinced him he is in with a “sniff” of making it to Brazil in 2014, but he insists he is not counting his chickens before they hatch.
"Maybe the World Cup is within reach but I'm certainly not getting carried away," he said. "I know how football is and from squad to squad it can change, and when you get to the age of 34, 35 this summer, people do look upon things differently and fair enough.
"I'm very understanding of where I'm at in my career. But if I can continue playing for Chelsea and continue contributing here, whether it's starting or as a valuable squad member, and when I do my bit, then the World Cup is getting a bit nearer.
"It's certainly a target for me and, yes, I will try to keep playing at a good enough level to get there. It's a target. I won't retire from England before that, put it that way.”
