The Daily Mirror understand that Chelsea captain John Terry is attracting interests from several Chinese clubs, as well as Turkish giants Fenerbahce, and the retired England defender could leave at the end of the season after falling down the pecking order at the club.
The report goes on to say that Terry’s contract at the West London club expires at the end of the season and given his current situation at Stamford Bridge, a move could be on the cards next summer for the 34-year old. The incentive of one last big pay-day in the Far East could be too tempting for the Chelsea longest serving player to move.
Terry was a big hit in China when he went on an ambassadorial tour of Guangzhou last summer, and as a result has received offers from Chinese clubs for when he decides to leave Stamford Bridge. Turkish giants Fenerbahce are also in the hunt for Terry in what could be a busy summer for the Englishman.
The 34-year old was once again on the bench as Chelsea suffered defeat on Wednesday evening in the Champions League against Porto, with Jose Mourinho’s return to the Estadio do Dragao ending on a sour note.
Chelsea have been alarmingly poor this term, having lost three games in the league and conceded 14 goals in seven league games, with Terry playing just four of them.
Next up for Chelsea is a home game against Southampton next weekend, and the Blues will be hoping to record victory against the South Coast outfit in order to get their league campaign back on track.
