JOHN TERRY  has been offered a cash-laden end to his playing career in Dubai – by his former Chelsea rival Dan Petrescu.


The Blues captain is nearing the end of his glittering Stamford Bridge career. Blues icon  Terry, 36, has made just five Premier League appearances this season for Antonio Conte’s table-toppers.

He has been offered a one-year contract extension, with the opportunity to complete his coaching qualifications. But  Petrescu, who now manages UAE club Al Nasr, said he wants to sign the England centre-back for next season.

And the Romanian, 49, said he will phone Terry to sound him out – describing the defender as a “very good friend “ despite their previous bust-ups.

The two players clashed in training when Terry first broke into Chelsea’s senior squad in 1998. Petrescu told the Gulf Times newspaper: “Where will John Terry end up next season? Al Nasr. Of course, why not? I will call him and ask.“I wish he was here. He’s a very good friend and a good player. I don’t know what he will do, but I wish him well. It depends on Chelsea. If they really want him he will stay, I’m sure.”.
