Chelsea captain John Terry is all set to call time on an illustrious career in the Premier League this summer and speculation regarding his future has increased in the last few weeks.
Danish side Brondby is ready to offer the defender a dual role to entice him to the club. Owner Jan Bech Anderson is friends with Terry and wants to bring him to Denmark as a player-manager, according to Daily Mirror.
Terry disclosed earlier this year that he might not feature for the Blues beyond the current season as no discussions to extend his contract had taken place.

However, the club responded by stating things could still change in the future, but didn't provide a timescale on when a decision is expected.
TURMOIL AT BRONDBY

Anderson insists funds are available to bring in quality talents to the club and wants to start by getting Terry on board as soon as possible.
Former Liverpool star Daniel Agger and ex-Bolton Wanderers striker Johan Elmander are already at the club based on the outskirts of Copenhagen and the hierarchy have assured there will be an influx of star names in future.
Ever since the news of Terry’s imminent departure from the Blues came to the fore, teams have begun to swarm in for the ex-England captain. Among those interested are Qatar side Al-Arabi - managed by Gianfranco Zola - as well as various clubs from China and the MLS.
The centre-back has publicly declared that he would like to remain at Stamford Bridge amidst demands from the Blues' faithful for the club to give their legend a new deal.
Chelsea have a policy of offering a one-year contract extension to players over 30 and despite being in that category, Terry has reiterated the belief he still has at least two years of his playing career left.
With his current deal set to run out in just over three months time, Terry may opt to wait for an offer from the west London club until the last minute before considering any offers from outside the Premier League.
The former England international has spent his entire professional career at Chelsea and made his 700th appearance in last weekend’s FA Cup tie against Everton.
