Hughes: Terry pursuit still on

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has revealed the big-spending Premier League club could continue their interest in Chelsea defender John Terry.

The Stamford Bridge club have made it clear they are not prepared to sell the England defender who would reportedly be offered £200,000 per week to play for the Eastlands outfit.

But Hughes told Sky Sports News: "That's Chelsea's stance and we understand that. We're obviously looking to strengthen in the defensive area. It's a case of seeing what level we want to go up to."

He added: "We want to make sure we strengthen in the defensive areas.

"If there comes a point where we feel we can't advance any deal we're involved in then we walk away."
