Defender has been with the Blues for the past 15 years.
The first task for incoming Chelsea head coach on his comeback to Stamford Bridge will be to decide whether long-serving captain John Terry has a future in west London or not, says the Daily Mail.
The former England skipper has been with the Blues for his entire career, making his Chelsea debut way back in 1998 and in the intervening 15-year period the defender has become a legend at the club.
Terry, 32, has appeared in 387 Premier League matches for Chelsea, scoring 32 goals in the process, while overall the centre back has featured in 574 contests for the club, finding the back of the net on 55 occasions.
However, with a contract at the Bridge that runs only until June 30 2014, there remain huge question marks over the veteran’s long-term future in the capital, especially given the fact that the club have so far failed to approach Terry about the possibility of signing a new deal to finish his career at Chelsea.
