Chelsea star receives massive £12m offer to leave Stamford Bridge

December 12, 2016

According to the latest transfer reports, Chinese giants Shanghai Shenhua have offered Chelsea legend John Terry a £12m deal to quit the Stamford Bridge club.

As per The Sun, the 36-year-old centre-back has been offered a one-year contract by the Chinese Super League club which would see him earn £12m after tax.

The iconic Chelsea captain has also been informed by the Blues that he is unlikely to be offered a new contract deal after his current deal expires at the end of the campaign.

The former England captain could make the move when the winter transfer window opens in January, with the Chinese Super League set to begin in February.

Shanghai Shenhua, who have finished fourth in the table last term, are now managed by former Chelsea team-mate of John Terry, Gus Poyet.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are considering to launch a £38 million bid for Fiorentina attacker Federico Bernardeschi, who has attracted the attention of Europe’s top clubs due to his impressive performances this season.

The latest reports from Calciomercato suggest that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is a huge fan of the 22-year-old Italian and would be keen on completing a deal in the January transfer window.

However, the Blues may now have to wait until the summer before completing a deal for the highly-rated Italy international.
