Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be lining up a cheeky move for Chelsea captain John Terry next summer. The former Blues boss is still not 100% happy with his Bernabeu back line and has still not agreed a new deal for regular centre back Pepe which has led some to believe Mourinho is looking to bring in reinforcements.
Chelsea are unlikely to accept any deal for the 29 year old one club man but any issue could be forced upon them if Terry himself pushes for an exit. After a decade plus at the west London club perhaps the England international would be interested in a new challenge.
Even though Real Madrid are top of La Liga and have the best defensive record in Spain the club have still not offered Portuguese international Pepe a new deal and this has led to rumours that there is a strained relationship between player and manager. There could also be some concerns over ageing Ricardo Carvalho who at 32 is clearly entering the tail end of a glittering career.
Carlo Ancelotti will fight off any attempts to nab John Terry but that may not prevent Jose Mourinho from making his interest known in a player who was the figurehead at the club during his reign at Chelsea, during which he helped the club to two Premier League titles.
