Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t stopped weeping since it was stated a iconic figure would leave this summer but it appears their loss could be Crystal Palace’s gain.
The tears were all sparked when John Terry announced yesterday that he is leaving Chelsea in the summer as a free agent, which has put many clubs on alert.
“I’ve bumped into John Terry on occasion and asked him many times to join me. He always sniggers at the suggestion. Of course I will ask one more time. I’m sure I’ll bump into him again and ask the question.”
However, Terry insisted in his statement that he will look to find a club abroad in the summer when his current deal runs out- stating he wouldn’t play for another Premier League side.
Terry though is more likely to move abroad with several options on the cards, one being joining Gary Neville in Spain or indeed joining David Beckham in L.A.
Of course there is the Chinese option, with the league are waving around huge wads of cash to football stars who are willing to make the move to the Far East.
Palace fans have your say……Would you like JT to sign for your club? Chelsea fans, should they offer Terry a new deal?
