Chelsea Confirm Terry Approach

Google language translator

Chelsea FC has today confirmed that Manchester City approached the club over the possible sale of John Terry. However City's approach was simply knocked back as Chelsea believe that their captain is the "heart" of their club.

Chelsea Executive told their official website:

"We made it very clear that John was not for sale,"

"We did not entertain any further conversation on the subject and nor will we in the future.

"John is our captain and the captain of England. He is part of the heart and soul of Chelsea."

John Terry was also informed of the approach and he moved quickly to commit himself to the Chelsea Cause:

"Chelsea told me what had happened with the enquiry as a courtesy,".

"I was very happy with their reaction as mine would have been the same. I have always said that I want to end my career at the club which I love and we all see no reason why that cannot happen.

"Given recent events I am more determined than ever to make Chelsea successful again."

I think that this approach was just another move by the owner's to show that they mean business even though that they knew the move would not materialise. I'm getting bored of this now though. I mean the Kaka deal was bad enough but to literally approach every big name will just give more ammunition for haters to this club.

LOL never going to happen.He already made it clear.I think only money will lure super stars at the moment and I don't see Jose coming to City very soon.Plus some one suggested in your Forum if Scolari joins there is a chance.LOL look like every one forgets Terry is an England player not a Brazilian player.

Your club is in danger of becoming a laughing stock. You are also doing big damage to your potential to sign anyone as players won't sign because of the stigma. It isn't helped by certain mwmbers of your numpty elements getting Kaka tatoos etc

Kaka and Ronaldinho are much more likely to join City than Terry. Personally I would much rather have Terry at Eastlands than any big European/International name... But I can see no reason why he would want to up-root from London. Respect for John ... I hope Dunney comes back strong as he is probably the closest we can get for now.

Terry lose of form and injuries are a concern. With that said he would be better than anything we have at eastlands. He wont come because hes a londoner through and through and city are relegation candidates, not fighting for throphies, no mourinho and are sill a "work in progress". As for whitewall - nothing wrong with having aspirations of winning throphies and signing the worlds best players. Remember we can outbid any team. To other clubs, being linked with the worlds best, despite having a poor season may seem laughable.... just wait till city get it right. We will see who is laughing then.
