John Terry’s announcement of his impending departure form Chelsea FC is something that has taken all the fans of the club by surprise.
According to reports, Terry has not been offered a contract extension by the club, who have left it up to the new manager for next season (yet to be decided), to take a call on Terry’s future at Chelsea FC. However, Terry himself seems to be preparing for his last couple of years in football, and that would not be at Chelsea FC.
The former England captain also revealed that he would not be moving to another Premier League club. This means that JT may me following his former teammate Frank Lampard to New York City FC in the MLS, or to some other league abroad.
Here are some of the best twitter reactions for John Terry’s impending departure from Stamford Bridge.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see John Terry play in China, after his ‘personal tour’ there last year & would also allow him to do Xmas Euro loan
