A story is doing the rounds in the Football Transfer Tavern that has certainly raised a few eyebrows, courtesy of David Kent at the Daily Mail.
It is reported that Turkish side Fenerbahce are interested in bringing Chelsea captain John Terry to Istanbul in the summer as they look to compete with great rivals Galatasaray for big name signings.
Terry has endured a difficult season at Stamford Bridge, picking up a serious injury in November and since been unable to force his way back into Rafael Benitez’s first choice eleven, leading to rumours of a bust up with the interim manager in the press.
The 32-year-old still has a year left on his current deal and is reportedly waiting until the summer to make a decision on his future.
Fenerbahce signed Dirk Kuyt from Liverpool at the start of the season but they trail rivals Galatasaray by four points in the Turkish league.
Galatasaray have been busy in the transfer market themselves, signing former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba and former Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder in the January transfer window.
They also have a last eight tie with Real Madrid to look forward to in the Champions League.
Fenerbahce are desperate to create similar success to that of their greatest rivals and are set for a big summer spending spree, with the Chelsea captain high on their list of priorities.
