Senior skipper and UCL winner to complete chelsea exit in january

Chelsea and England legend John Terry could be on his way out of Chelsea this January, after a successful 21-years spell at Stamford Bridge.

Report according to Express claims that former boss Andre Villas-Boas wants a reunion with his former skipper Terry in China.

The former Zenit St Petersburg boss took over the managerial position of China super League club ShanghaiSIPG from former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson earlier this month, after failing to lead the club to any major title in two years.

Terry who will be 36-years old by December 7th has fallen down the pecking order in Chelsea’s three man defenses, with Italian tactician Antonio Conte preferring the combination of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and fellow English man Garry Cahill at the heart of defense.

The tough tackling defender saw his wages reduced last summer before he was awarded a year contract extension. But with a massive weekly wages which the Chinese club is willing to offer him, the Blues skipper could actually be tempted to make a switch. He could also consider the fact that he has won every major trophy with the Blues, and a guaranteed starting spot with a less physical and challenging task awaits him.

However, the decision lies on Chelsea whether to allow their skipper leaves Stamford Bridge this winter transfer window, or to award him a new role at the club whether as an ambassador or a member of the coaching crew, should he decides to hung his boot at the end of the season.

Terry led the Blues to first and only UEFA Champions League victory in 2012. He has also helped the Blues win other domestic and European titles such as the Premier League, FA Cup, Community Shield, League Cup and the UEFA Europa Cup.
