Well, it seems I can’t ignore the latest rumour about John Terry’s career, as it’s been circulating for several days now and isn’t going away. While I do feel the need to mention it, I must say that I’m skeptical of the validity of the story and lump it in with the report that Roman Abramovich is going to “clean house” this summer and sell all our star players and legends.
According to several news outlets, Jose Mourinho is keen to be reunited with Chelsea Captain Terry. As such, Real Madrid may attempt to buy him from the Blues once the season ends. Mourinho, who won back-to-back Premier League titles with Terry at Chelsea, would apparently like to reconnect him with former Chelsea man Ricardo Carvalho.
What rumour, if any, should we believe? Other stories recently have spread the idea that Mourinho himself may return to Chelsea… so will he reunite with Terry at Stamford Bridge or the Bernabeu?
John Terry has played his entire career with Chelsea. He’s our fierce, dedicated and loyal leader. Attempts to lure him away in the past haven’t worked so I don’t know that one will this time. His contract isn’t up until 2014 and I can’t imagine him choosing to make a move towards the end of his career any more than I can see Abramovich selling him. Where would be without our beloved captain?
In last month’s Chelsea magazine, Terry spoke of his love for the club and desire to help and support the youth players. The article, by Dominic Bliss, states, “if anyone embodies the ethos of Chelsea it is John Terry, the captain who has lived and breathed the club since he was a boy and the player who has set the standard for every other footballer coming through the Academy ranks.”
Terry himself is quoted as saying, “I care about this club more than anybody” and that I don’t doubt.
The stories may circulate, as they have throughout the years, but I feel confident that John Terry is a Chelsea man. He is devoted to the club and knows that the fans love and support him. While some players (whom we are grateful to for what they’ve achieved) may move on, I’d be shocked if Terry left in any way other than when he takes his boots off for the last time and retires.
