Terry has confirmed he will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of his current deal, but is expected to carry on playing with a number of other clubs interested. The likes of Stoke and Bournemouth have been talked up as potential Premier League destinations, but Chinese outfit Tianjin Quanjian are also in the frame.

Tianjin are expected to seal a deal to sign Blues striker Diego Costa when the season ends, with the Spanish international earning a staggering €30m-a-year​. ​French channel SFR Sport have since claimed Chelsea have told Costa’s suitors that their asking price for the striker is an incredible €150m.

While the two clubs continue to negotiate over a fee, it’s reported that Tianjin will also make a play to Terry to give him one final pay day before he decides to retire from the game. They are ready to come up with a lucrative two-year deal to tempt the former England captain over to Asia.
The reports dovetail with recent comments from owner Shu Yuhui, who earlier this week claimed the club have sealed pre-contract agreements with ‘two or three’ stars.

He said: “The only thing I can reveal right now is that we have agreed terms with two or three stars. The players have no problem with the deals and their clubs are also willing to let them leave.

“If some [European] clubs are intent on taking advantage of us, we won’t allow ourselves to get ripped off. We won’t lose our mind.”
