John Terry not ruling out future move to MLS

Published Add your comment

John Terry has opened up the possibility of a move to Major League Soccer in the future, although the Blues skipper is adamant he still wants to finish his career at Stamford Bridge.

His former teammate Frank Lampard is returning to his parent club New York City FC after being loaned to Manchester City for the 2014/2015 season. 

And with Steven Gerrard also moving to America next season, Terry has not completely ruled out a trans-Atlantic switch to the United States before he brings a close to his successful career.

Terry is quoted by the Evening Standard as saying: "I would love to finish my career at Chelsea and maybe there is a time when I look to go to play in America or whatever might be best for my family at the time.

"Hopefully I have a couple of years left at least. I always thought I could get to age of 35 and still (be) playing and I am getting close to that now."

The 34-year-old won his fourth Premier League title this season - his third under Mourinho's management.

There were questions raised at the end of last season about Terry's future in the team, however, the skipper was a pillar in Chelsea's defence this season, playing every minute of the 38 games for Jose Mourinho's title winning side.

Terry believes this current Chelsea squad is the most exciting team to be part of in the club's history, adding that along with the youth players coming through the Chelsea ranks, this current group of players are capable of surpassing the achievements of previous Chelsea squads.

He added: "Looking at this squad now, I think this squad has the potential to do a lot more than we did in the past, well beyond my playing days."

It seems from his remarks that Terry is genuinely excited by the possibilities of this current side, although if he feels he has become surplus to the club's requirements in the near future he will consider his options in the MLS.
