Bournemouth to entice Terry with two-year contract
LONDON: Bournemouth are prepared to offer John Terry a twoyear contract to ensure he continues playing next season.
The 36-year-old made the surprising admission on Monday that he was considering retiring after Chelsea’s FA Cup final against Arsenal on May 27, particularly given he vowed to play on in announcing his decision to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
However, it is understood Terry is almost certain to continue playing next season and prefers a move to a rival Premier League club.
As revealed last month, Bournemouth are the front runners for his signature.
Due to his age, Terry has been signing 12-month extensions at Chelsea in recent seasons, but the Cherries are ready to offer the defender the security of a two-year deal to pull off a successful coup.
The fact Terry will be available on a free transfer means Bournemouth will be able to offer the Chelsea legend an attractive pay-deal with a substantial signing-on fee.
A move to the south coast would mean minimum upheaval for Terry’s family, a consideration that will be key when it comes to the defender making his final decision. Daily Mail
