Chelsea star linked with move to Chinese Super League after losing his starting spot

Posted by

John Terry is a target for Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail report that the Chinese side will offer an £8 million-a-season deal to the Chelsea veteran when his contract expires in the summer.

The tabloid note that Terry is already an ambassador for the club and so a link-up with former manager Luiz Felipe Scolari could well be on the cards.

Guangzhou already have former Spurs midfielder Paulinho as well as Colombian striker Jackson Martinez in their squad.

Terry has fallen out of favour at Chelsea since suffering an ankle injury last month. Since his recovery, he has found himself behind Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta in the pecking order. Antonio Conte’s side have not conceded a Premier League goal since changing to a back three four games ago.

With Kurt Zouma also set to return after a long lay-off with an ACL rupture, it is looking difficult for the 35-year-old to force his way back into contention.

Who could blame him for opting for one final payday before calling it quits on his illustrious career?
