Chelsea captain John Terry has been linked with a shock move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce by Daily Mail.
The Chelsea captain is not only legend at Stamford Bridge, but also one of the best defenders of modern era. Even last season, the 34 year old was the best defender in Europe.
After his tactical substitution in Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat away to Manchester City, the Blues captain has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
According to Mail, Turkish giants Fenerbahce are keen to sign the England star and are willing to offer him a net salary of 2.5 million pounds per season.
The Chelsea captain will turn 35 in December and has only one year remaining in his Chelsea contract and Fenerbahce want to sign the iconic defender on a free transfer then.
Chelsea fans will certainly be shocked with the links considering the Stamford Bridge faithful adore their captain and the prospect of him leaving the club is unthinkable.
Chelsea are already looking to replace Terry long term and are after Everton defender John Stones. With Mourinho’s willingness to pay upto 40 million pounds for a young defender, one has to wonder if Jose knows that Terry’s time is up sooner rather than later.
Terry has previously shown interest in moving to Turkey and is allowed to open talks with foreign clubs, considering he has just a year left on his current contract with the Champions.
It will be interesting to see how much or if there is any truth to these reports, but it will be a massive loss for Chelsea if Terry was to leave, both on and off the pitch.
