According to The Sun the Chelsea captain is moving abroad to the Chinese Super League, and sign a contract that could see the 35-year-old earn £12m-a-year.
Speculation has been rife in recent months as to what the future holds for Terry, with Chelsea reportedly unprepared to offer the veteran blocker a new deal.
That’s caused anger among the Stamford Bridge faithful and Metro reports that fans are planning a protest during the final home game of the season against Leicester on Sunday.
The Major League Soccer had been reported as a possible destination for Terry but no club in the USA has so far made attempts to sign him as a ‘designated’ player basis, “meaning he would only earn around £5,000-per-week”.
Terry, who is not ready to play for a paltry sum, has looked to the east and it appears he is set for what the Sun describes as a “a bumper payday”.
Clubs in the Chinese Super League receive financial backing from the government and it’s believed that two sides in particular are tussling for Terry’s signature – Shanghai SIPG, managed by Terry’s former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson, and Guangzhou Evergrande, under the stewardship of Phil Scolari, who the defender knows from the Brazilian’s time in charge of Chelsea.
