Chelsea star reveals MLS could be an option if he does not land new contract

first_imgJohn Terry is determined to finish his career at Chelsea – but admits he would consider a move to the MLS if he was no longer wanted by the club.The 34-year-old has enjoyed an outstanding season, playing every minute for the Blues in the Premier League as they stormed to title glory.He believes he can continue to play a key role for Chelsea beyond his current contract, which expires in 2016.But Terry has revealed he could be tempted to follow former teammate Frank Lampard to America should Jose Mourinho decide not to keep him on.In an exclusive interview with the Sports Bar, the ex-England captain said: “I would love to finish my career at Chelsea.“I certainly don’t want to play for another club in the Premier League or England. I don’t think you get that loyalty within football anymore.“The likes of Lamps, Didier [Drogba], Rio [Ferdinand], Stevie [Gerrard], these guys have stayed at the very top at the best clubs in the world and managed to stay in the team, stay fit and stay hungry, and it is great thing to do, so I am hoping to finish my career at Chelsea.“If Chelsea decide otherwise, whether that be next year or the year after, and I still feel I will play, of course I will go and play [elsewhere]. I will go to America, wherever the opportunities are there.“At that stage of my career it would need to suit not only myself but my family as well. Ideally for me, my family are local, and I would love to finish my career at Chelsea.“When I first started out, I wanted to make it to 35. As you get older, the way players look after themselves these days, you can hopefully go beyond that, and that is what I am targeting.”last_img read more
