Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Frank Lampard rumours

Frank Lampard

Manchester United have been linked with signing Frank Lampard. How do fans feel about it?

Is Frank Lampard heading for Old Trafford? For the second January in a row, the possibility has raised it's head.

The Star claimed that United want to sign Lampard along with Ashley Cole in the summer if the Chelsea pair are not offered new deals at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard hit two goals for Chelsea at the end of the December in a 2-1 win at Everton, proving he still has plenty to offer in the Premier League.

The Star's report said: "Fergie is prepared to wait until the summer, when he will offer the duo one-year rolling contracts which will allow them to continue playing at the highest level."

So how has this gone down with United fans? After all they have Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs pushing up the average age of their squad, do they need another veteran?

We took a look at Twitter to gauge a cross-section of views:

@pau1luvsutd: Don't want Lampard or Cole anywhere near #mufc Cole is a **** andLampard is too old #notoLampardandCole

@forzadane: just seen United linked with Frank Lampard and was a bit sick in my mouth. please please please please NO!... #MUFC #transferwindow

@lefachueu: #mufc I don't think that Fergie should offer Lampard or cole a contract this summer.

@redrick9: Lampard joining #mufc is the most ridiculous think Ive heard and its only day 1 of the transfer window. #LongMonthAhead
