Englishman has been in west London for his whole career.
Turkish giants Galatasaray are to step up their attempts to lure experienced Chelsea skipper John Terry to Istanbul at the end of this season by offering the defender a lucrative three-year contract to leave the west London club, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The former England international has a deal with the Blues that now only runs until the end of this current campaign, meaning that Terry can start to talk to any foreign-based club who may be interested in his services as of January 1 ahead of a possible bumper free transfer out of Stamford Bridge next summer.
And new Gala head coach Roberto Mancini, who knows Terry well from his four years working as manager of Premier League outfit Manchester City, is understood to be a huge fan of the centre back and as such has asked his employers to do all they can to land the 32-year-old next year.
As a result, it is understood that the Turks are preparing an eye-catching two-year contract, with the option of a third year, worth £3.2 million a season, although with win, Uefa Champions League and appearance bonuses all taken into account, the actual offer on the table will work out being close to Terry’s current £8m-a-year deal at the Bridge.
