Chelsea legend John Terry ended his 22-year affinity with the club two seasons ago, and now the former Chelsea captain is reportedly set to sign for Russian side, Spartak Moscow.
According to reports, the 37-year-old is currently undergoing his medical with the Russian club. Terry was undecided whether to continue his career or to retire but had been expected to rejoin Villa should he decide to carry on his playing days.
However, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Terry has decided on a shock move to Spartak Moscow and has completed part of his medical with the club on Saturday.
Terry has revealed that he will keep on playing for a while before he resumes his ambitions of being a manager, and he revealed that he has a plan to be Chelsea manager in five to eight years time.
“I’ve got three or four offers on the table to carry on playing — domestically or abroad — the chance to work in TV, or I will go into management,” he told the Daily Mail.
“Yes, it’s true, I want to be the manager of Chelsea one day but that is a five to eight-year plan.
“I have the voice of Ray Wilkins, who was such a brilliant man to me, in my mind.
“He missed playing every day after he retired and he told me, ‘John, play as long as you can, don’t close that door until you have to’.”
