Speaking after being informed by the Blues that they would not be offering him a new deal, 35-year-old club captain Terry confirmed that he would be leaving the club in the summer.
While Terry revealed that he is looking to continue his playing career, he has confirmed that he will never represent another English club, opening the door to a possible move overseas.
Speaking to 888poker, one of Terry’s former teammates, Le Saux, has backed the centre-back to continue shining at Stamford Bridge, while also admitting that the prospect of a move to Major League Soccer shouldn’t be off the cards.
“If John stays at Chelsea and wants to be a one-club man then he has to be realistic whether he will play as much football. That’s difficult for any player,” the former England left-back began
“But John hasn’t shown any signs of being off the pace. He will want to be judged on his performances on the pitch, but the last year has been one of his best.”
Le Saux continued by opening the door to a switch to the United States, and possibly reuniting with two other ex-teammates, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.
“When players get older they now have the possibility to go overseas, like [Frank] Lampard and [Steven] Gerrard to the MLS. They are playing at a decent level where they still get well rewarded.
“It gives them the option to to continue their careers and still earn significant amounts of money.”
