Chelsea stalwart close to £12m China switch, former England coach desperate to land him

Arsenal v Chelsea - Barclays Premier League

The glittering career of John Terry as a Chelsea player came to an abrupt end this weekend following his dismissal away at Sunderland.

There won’t be a dry eye in the Transfer Tavern when the 35-year old officially leaves Stamford Bridge, though it is hugely unlikely he will ever play for his beloved boyhood charges again.

It’s all becoming a bit real for the Blues who prop the bar up in our lively Tavern, with reports from the Sun hitting them like a ton of bricks.

They claim that the Stamford stalwart will make a money spinning move to China, in what could see him become one of the most highly paid players in the world.

A stunning £12m-per-season deal is thought to be on the table, with former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson keen to bring him to Shanghai SIPG.

The Chinese Super League is looking for big names to boost the profile of the sport there and have been spending lavishly to bring in the likes of Ramires and Jackson Martinez.

Should Terry have been given at least another season? Or is it the right time to go?
