Valencia target January move for ex-England skipper John Terry
Published : 02 Nov 2012 16:08:25
The Mirror are reporting that John Terry could be on board for a sensational transfer to Spanish side Valencia as early as this January.
The former England captain has been fined financially by Chelsea & The FA – as well as being banned domestically for four games – despite being deemed innocent by Westminster Magistrate Howard Riddle.
Now, FIFA Agent Francois Gallardo has claimed Terry has been offered a chance to relaunch his career in Spain – due to being dissapointed by Chelsea's backing in his cause. Valencia are ready to offer JT an 18 month contract with a fruther year – meaning he could be playing for the Spanish at 34.
Gallardo told Radio Intereconomia: “Valencia are negotiationg, and I am involved in person, with the signing in January – the offer is on his table.”
JT has been made aware he will not be given a new contract at the end of his current deal, set to expire in 2014 and feels 'insulted' by the club.
Gallardo added: “Terry has problems. They are insulting him and he is not taking it anymore – he asked to leave.”
Gallardo continuted: “Its real. This has been going on for 15 days and two meeting have already taken place. The deal is already on his table – a year and a half plus one. I think he will accept.”
It is difficult to put a price on JT. The Chelsea stalwart has been an iconic figure throughout his career at Chelea – but followed by plenty of controversy.
With Russian billionare Roman Abramovich only offering the 30+ Chelsea player's one year deals – Terry may feel a potential two and a half year deal security as well as a new life style in the capital of Spain may be the ideal scenario to re launch not only his career – but his life aswell.
