Chelsea Legend opens about offers while at Stamford Bridge and one offer was accepted

John Terry became a legendary figure, Chelsea. But he got a couple of opportunities to head elsewhere.

John Terry was only ever aware of two proposals for him during his time at Stamford Bridge. With Huddersfield Town and Man City trying to tempt the defender away from Chelsea

However, things could have been very different for the former England international. With Chelsea accepting the bid for him from Huddersfield Town 20 years back. He was just 19 years old back then. 

Chelsea was willing to let Terry move to Huddersfield. But boss Gianluca Vialli stepped in and made a judgment. And that judgment has proved to be huge for Chelsea’s future.

The second bid came in entirely different situations. With Man City

, under Mark Hughes, aiming to sign Terry in 2009 as an experienced 29-year-old. But the Chelsea legend was not at all enthusiastic about the move.

The Chelsea Saga

John Terry became a legendary figure Chelsea.

Terry eventually left Chelsea in 2017. He finished his career at Aston Villa. Where he presently is assistant manager to Dean Smith. The man who gave him his Chelsea debut, Gianluca Vialli, gets deserved prestige for his impact on Terry’s career. 

Recently in an interview, John Terry has lifted the lid on Jose Mourinho’s popular mind games. By retelling one event when the former Chelsea boss threatened to sell him and center-back partner Gary Cahill during a bad training session. Mourinho was not happy with the messy display by the defensive duo during the first day of training in pre-season. 

At the peak of his powers, Terry was known as one of the finest center-halves on the planet. Unsurprisingly, his qualities drew a ton of admiring glances from afar. And produced the odd round of transfer talk. Terry established his ‘Captain, Leader, Legend’ reputation at Chelsea over the course of a 19-year spell as a senior star in west London.

A brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest also happened during his time with Chelsea. No defender has netted more goals in Chelsea history than John Terry’s 67 goals. The center-back made over 700 appearances for the Blues. Winning five PL titles, the Champions League and multiple FA and League Cups.
