The club captain and legend is in the final stages of his career and it all looks like heading towards a summer exit for the 36-year old, having not received a new contract offer on his existing deal that will expire at the end of the season. Terry started the season under Conte as first-choice, but following a brief spell out on the sidelines due to an injury, he has failed to make a comeback in the first-team.
The excellent form of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill has meant the Englishman has been hardly required. And with Kurt Zouma fit and raring to again, along with the highly impressive Nathan Ake, who returned to the squad earlier in January cutting short a loan spell with Bournemouth, it doesn’t look like Terry will play much till the end of the season.
Plus, the imminent return of Andreas Christensen from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer looks to be the death knell for the club’s longest serving player with a stint in the lucrative Chinese Super League or the Major League Soccer in the USA on the cards.
