Fellow Stamford Bridge hero Frank Lampard and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard are both moving to America this summer, to New York City and LA Galaxy respectively. Although Terry is keen to play for the Blues for as long as he possibly can, at 34-years-old he could be forced out by younger players over the next few seasons.

With youngsters such as Kurt Zouma just breaking in to manager Jose Mourinho’s plans, Terry is open to moving to the MLS to further his career as long as his family is happy with it.

He said: “I would love to finish my career at Chelsea and maybe there is a time when I look to go to play in America or whatever might be best for my family at the time. Hopefully I have a couple of years left at least. I always thought I could get to age of 35 and still [be] playing and I am getting close to that now.”

However, after leading Chelsea to the Premier League title while playing every single minute of the campaign, it seems the former England international has a few years left in him yet. He is only the second outfield player after ex-Manchester United defender Gary Pallister to manage the impressive feat.
