Chelsea legend open to MLS move as exit looms

John Terry is open to the idea of moving to the MLS should he ever leave Chelsea, according to reports at ESPN FC.

The Blues skipper has been a stalwart for the side for over a decade and is widely regarded as a club legend at Stamford Bridge.

Aside from a brief stint on loan at Nottingham Forest in 2000, the 34-year old has never played for another club on these shores despite Manchester City’s attempts to sign him in 2009.

Asked by former England teammate Jamie Carragher if he would ever play for another English club, Terry replied: ‘No. No chance. No chance.’

However, the former England captain is reportedly open to the idea of jumping across the pond once his career in England is finished.

‘America, maybe. But physically I still feel like I can play’, added the Stamford stalwart.

Former teammates David Beckham, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard all moved stateside as they entered the final stages of their careers.

Terry is out of contract at the end of this season and has revealed he and the club have not yet entered talks to extend his deal.

However, those behind the scenes in West London do not tend to enter discussions with players over 30 until around February.
