First offer rolls in for John Terry as Chelsea skipper offered big-money move

Posted by

According to reports, Qatari side Al Arabi have become one of the first sides to approach John Terry about a possible move.

It was revealed over the weekend that the Chelsea centre-back will be leaving Stamford Bridge in the summer as he is not to be offered a new contract at the club he has represented for the entirety of his career [The Guardian].

While Terry remains a fine competitor, he will turn 36 later this year and, having ruled out a move to another Premier League side [Standard], he looks set for a move overseas in the summer, possibly to one of the world’s lesser—but more lucrative—leagues.

According to the Mirror, he has been offered a big-money move to the Middle East, with Qatari side Al Arabi—currently managed by Blues legend and Terry’s former teammate Gianfranco Zola—having sounded out the player and held talks with his advisors.

The tabloid note that Zola is confident he can recruit the player, although they also report that several Major League Soccer sides are ‘watching developments’, while the possibility of a move to the high-spending Chinese Super League cannot be ruled out.
