After a lacklustre season so far, John Terry could be tempted to leave England to rejoin Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.
According to reports from Sport, the La Liga giants could look to tempt Chelsea to cash in on their captain by offering Pepe in a part-exchange, part-cash deal.
The 29-year-old England star is a target of Mourinho, who is looking to add some backbone to their defence.
Currently Pepe is persona no grata at Real after his wage demands of £85,000 a week were deemed over-the-top by the club’s hierarchy, and with two more years on his current contract, Mourinho could either sell him for £20 million or secure a direct swap for the Portugal international. (ESPN)
There appears to be a growing amount of speculation that John Terry could be set to to rejoin form Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, but is there any truth to the rumours? Well it seems hard to believe that any deal that would take the England international would involve some sort of swap for Portuguese international Pepe as there is quite a gap of class between the two players.
Carlo Ancelotti will not want to lose his skipper and will fight off any interest in the centre back and perhaps news of a potential move is merely mindless rumour mongering. After all Ashley Cole has always been strongly linked with a move to the Bernabeu and many had predicted the full back would move to the La Liga giants last summer but no such deal took place.
What do Chelsea fans think? Is this plausible? Or just blind speculation
