Chelsea news: Defender receives offer from Harry Kewell to end 22-year spell with a Turkish adventure

The ex Australian international reportedly forwarded an enquiry from Galatasaray directly to John Terry’s representatives.

Galatasaray are keen on a one-year deal for Terry with the option to extend by a single season.

If Terry were to leave the Blues it would end a 28-year spell at the club.

The 36-year-old centre-back has struggled for playing time ever since head coach Antonio Conte switched formation to a three-back.

Terry would become the second Chelsea legend after Didier Drogba to join Galatasaray if he were to make a move.

Terry has had no shortage of suitors, manager UAE based side Al-Nasr Dan Petrescu revealed that he also wants the defender to join him.

“I wish he was here. He’s a very good friend and a good player. I don’t know what he will do, but I wish him well. It depends on Chelsea. If they really want him he will stay, I’m sure,” Petrescu was quoted as saying by the Gulf Times.

Terry has made just 11 appearances in all competitions for the Blues in all competitions this season.
