Could get used to this! Christine Bleakley and Frank catch up with Becks at LA Galaxy match as Lampard 'considers move to US team'

By Sarah Bull

It was rumoured earlier this year that LA Galaxy are considering poaching Chelsea player Frank Lampard during the summer transfer window.

And it seems the claims could be true, as Lampard and fiancée Christine Bleakley were spotted testing the LA lifestyle as they watched the team play at the Home Depot Centre in Los Angeles last night.

The pair were joined by David Beckham, who was suspended from Galaxy's match against Philadelphia Union after accumulating yellow cards in a game earlier this week versus the San Jose Earthquakes.

The trio watched in the stands as the game took place, with Bleakley looking more than excited about the prospect of a US-based WAG lifestyle.

The 33-year-old presenter looked chic in a black dress as she took in the action, accompanied by Lampard, who wore a blue and white checked shirt.

But the trio's presence wasn't enough to help Galaxy win the match, and they ended up losing the game 2-1 to Philadelphia Union.

Loving the LA lifestyle: The pair's trip to the match came amid reports that Frank is considering a move to the U.S. team

Smiles all round: Lampard looked in good spirits as he sat in the box with David Beckham, who had been suspended from the match after accumulating yellow cards in a previous game

It was claimed recently that Galaxy are considering making an offer to Lampard this summer, with the footballer reported to be keen to call time on his time with £130,000-a-week contract with Chelsea FC, despite having a year left.

LA Galaxy owner Tim Leiweke previously admitted that he was keen to sign Lampard, saying in a recent interview: 'I'm a fan of Frank's. I think he's a great player.

'When I think of Chelsea, I think of Frank Lampard. It took us two years to get David to come here the first time.'

Would you recommend it? Lampard appeared to be questioning Beckham about whether or not he should make the move to LA, while Christine spent the match beaming from ear to ear

It remains to be seen, however, whether Christine would relocate to Los Angeles to be with her fiancé, although it seems likely given her love of the U.S. city.

And a friend of the presenter's said recently that Christine would be keen to forge a presenting career Stateside if she did decide to move to LA.

A source told the Daily Mail: 'Christine is confident she could get a good gig in the US and has already made some crucial contacts. They are really excited at the possibility.'
