England Captain thinks of a way to leave the club without appearing to be a money grabbing mercenary…fails!
John Terry: Driven by the desire to earn as much as is humanly possible?
John Terry and Roman Abramovich were locked in crisis talks last night.
The Chelsea star met the club’s billionaire owner at the Cobham training ground.
Terry asked for the chance to hear what Manchester City want to offer him.
Cash-rich City, funded by their Abu Dhabi United backers, are poised to table a new, third bid for Terry.
They will put £50million on the table, believing it is the offer Chelsea can’t refuse.
Chelsea have insisted that 28-year-old Terry will not be sold at any price, but yesterday’s meeting with Abramovich could spark a change in policy.
It is not just the opportunity of becoming the highest paid player in English football, on £250,000 a-week at City, that is sparking Terry’s unrest.
He has confided in friends that he has been unhappy at Chelsea for several months and has been concerned by the club’s transfer policy and the lack of impact some major signings have had.

John Terry is not coming across very well in recent stories linking him with a move to Man City, in fact he looks like someone desperately scrambling for reasons to justify his potential exit from the club that he has served for his entire footballing career. It’s a sad state of affairs when a one man club appears to value a huge pay offer from Man City higher than his loyalty to Chelsea.
He can dress it up anyway he sees fit but his stating that he is unhappy about the fact his west London employers didn’t discuss with him the interest shown in him from another club is merely a ruse, either to earn himself another huge pay rise, and remember he is in the top five earners in the Premier League as it is, or so that he can try to claim that he was forced to leave the club.
Carlo Ancelotti was very wise when he stated in a recent press interview that if the Blues captain wants to leave he can only do so by issuing a transfer request therefore cleverly putting the onus on Terry to make the first move, something he doesn’t want to do because it will make him look like a money grabbing so and so. This will rumble on and on but I tell you what, It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he took the offer from Eastlands!
John Terry to Man City: Seemed crazy a few weeks back but seems far more plausible now.
