There is some sombre news hidden in the aftermath of the eye-catching win against MK Dons in the FA Cup for the Chelsea fans as there are reports surfacing in media outlets that the club captain John Terry will not be given a new contract at the end of the season and will be allowed to leave the club after almost a couple of decades of service to his one and only home.

The reports emerge from the Star Weekly sports journalist, Liam Twomey who has stated that the legend will not receive a contract as he will be replaced with younger legs over the summer. The player is already on the wrong side of his thirties and has been afforded only a single year contract over the past couple of years as is the norm with veterans in the Chelsea squad.

This will be a major signal of intention from the club as Terry was the centre back in last season’s PFA Team of the Year and was widely accepted to be the very best defender in the league. Over the current season, it has been made clear that a high line means doom for the player and as Chelsea are looking at the likes of Antonio Conte and Jorge Sampaoli to come in at the managerial position, it is probably the most logical decision if not a very popular one from the Chelsea board.

The player will prolong his career outside the British Isles, presumably to destinations like MLS as he has publicly stated that he will never join any other Premier League club. The player will be a huge loss in the dressing room but his farewell will be a sight to behold. Many tears will be shed as the Blues fans would bid farewell to the greatest captain, the greatest defender and one of the greatest players who has ever graced the royal blue of Chelsea.
