Rumours of a move to China this January amid the Super League’s purge of Europe have dogged John Terry this season.
However, Terry will see out the season at Chelsea in a bid to win the title in what could be his last season.
John Terry has not featured in Conte’s plans as much as he would’ve hoped coming into this years campaign since the acquisition of David Luiz. This led to reports of a £20M bid by Guangzhou Evergrande to get the 36 year old off of The Blues books.
Terry reassures fans that he isn’t going anywhere, He told Sky’s Soccer AM:
‘Whatever happens, in some capacity I will be at Chelsea, whether that’s with my season ticket watching them.
‘I’m not kind of eager that the end of my career is coming and thinking, “What’s going to happen now?”. I’m very relaxed about it.’
Presuming Chelsea do not offer the former English captain a contract renewal, Terry is likely to either retire or head over to China for the twilight of his career. It seems however that John has his mind set on one last hoorah with Chelsea and is solely focused on delivering for his team should they call upon his services.
One thing seems for sure, Terry is staying put this January.
Chelsea are set to face Bournemouth at 3pm (UK time) today where, in the absence of star striker Costa, they will attempt to break the club record of 11 straight Premier League wins set in 2009.
The Blues sit six points clear at the top of the table and will look to extend that this Boxing Day at Stamford Bridge.
