The Chelsea captain announced yesterday that, as it currently stands, the club won't be offering him a new deal when his current contract expires in the summer.

Terry came through the youth team at Chelsea, and has played almost 700 games, winning four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and the Champions League and Europa League.

It always seemed like he'd be a one-club man, but this offer might just change that.

According to the Telegraph report, Terry already has contacts in China, and last year embarked on a one-man promotional tour of the country. He is said to be considering his options.

We reckon when you're offered 20 million quid for one season, that's when the consideration process ends.
