John Terry is being eyed up for a shock transfer by Turkish giants Fenerbahce, who believe they might be able to land the Chelsea star on a free transfer.
The astounding claim emanates from the Daily Mail, who relay that Fenerbahce are interested in taking advantage of the fact that Terry can negotiate with other sides from January onwards due to his contract expiring next year.
Despite being a key component of Chelsea’s title win of last term the ex-England captain has struggled to hit the ground running this time around and was substituted for the first time ever under Mourinho during the Blues’ hammering at the hands of Manchester City.

As a result speculation insists that his time as the unerring rock in the Stamford Bridge might be nearing its end, and with Fenerbahce ready to offer him £2.5million-a-year in wages he might be tempted to leave west London before he’s forced to look elsewhere next summer.
Terry of course carefully considered Galatasaray’s offer last year, and is thought to be willing to see out the remainder of his years elsewhere even though he is a Chelsea legend.
It can safely be assumed he’d be welcomed back to the Blues fold in the future in a non-playing role, and his affiliation with the Chelsea faithful should ensure there are no hard feelings offered if and when he does leave the club.
In any case he’d be an astute signing for Fenerbahce, who have already landed both Nani and Robin van Persie this summer to show that they’re serious about building a side packed full of experience.
