Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has discounted the possibility of Frank Lampard leaving Stamford Bridge.
Barcelona had admitted they would like to bring Lampard to Spain, but Mourinho believes the England midfielder will end his career at Stamford Bridge.
“I believe before his contract ends, Chelsea will offer him an agreement until the end of his career,” said Mourinho.
“I don’t think there is any chance of Frank joining Barcelona.
“He has the kind of deal which I doubt any club in the world could beat.
“We don’t need to sell players and he loves Chelsea.
“I would not change him for anyone. His performances from the beginning to the end in any circumstances are incomparable.”
Mourinho also praised William Gallas for his contribution to the club’s season.
“Gallas is an amazing and consistent player, who can operate in any position in defence,” added Mourinho.
“Within our defence, he is the one I have picked, plus three others.”
