According to the reports, Chelsea skipper John Terry can be introduced in China’s Super League by former Blues’ manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Reportedly, the former England captain is at the top of the wishlist of Andre Villas-Boas. The Portuguese manager has been keeping Terry in his radar since he has taken charge of the Chinese side Shanghai SIPG and the 35 year old defender had already received contract offer from the side last summer.
The Chelsea skipper had rejected £12m a year deal from the Chinese side to enjoy the Premier League and signed a 12 month contract extension with his boyhood club from the West London.
But recently, John Terry has been finding his place on the bench under Antonio Conte losing spot in the first team after missing out four matches due to ankle injury throughout late September and early October. So, the current situation has catalyzed the speculation suggesting that the defender can make his way out of Stamford Bridge either in January or in the summer once his deal expires.
The former Champions of England have improved a lot since their boss Antonio Conte has switched his formation. And reportedly Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta have been doing their jobs brilliantly in the defense that they are yet to consider any goal in the Premier League since the manager has changed the system.
A lack of regular football which is affecting his performance can now force John Terry to depart Chelsea even ahead of possible fifth Premier League title for Chelsea.
The veteran Chelsea skipper has featured only once since recovering from injury and with that appearance he has seen his side losing 2-1 to another London side West Ham United. So, there can not be any reason for Conte to recall John in the starting line up breaking the five match winning combination in his team.
Previously Terry had worked under Ander Villas-Boas, but the later had very harsh luck in London as he failed to follow the path of the former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and was sacked within just nine months of his spell.
Now, after taking charge of the Chinese side replacing Sven Goran Eriksson, the ex-Chelsea manager is keen to introduce few heavyweight names in the China’s Super League as he continues to rebuild his career away from England.
