John Terry news

Terry could be off to China next season

Chinese outfit Guangzhou Evergrande are eyeing a Bosman move for John Terry when his contract expires at the end of the season. The England international has barely featured for the Blues since his recovery from a ligament injury.

The 35-year-old was expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer before the Blues offered him a one-year extension on a substantial pay cut.

Terry followed to earn a regular run in the starting line-up before he sustained a minor niggle in the 2-2 draw at Swansea City.

Since then, Conte has utilized the 3-4-3 formation, and this has seen Terry warm the substitutes' bench with Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and David Luiz being the preferred three at the back.

According to The Mail, the former England international could be lured to the Far East next season with Guangzhou Evergrande prepared to offer him wages of around £8 million a year.

Terry has turned out over 700 times for Chelsea since graduating from the club's youth academy in 1998.
