Al-Nasr Dubai who play in the Arabian Gulf League are hoping to sign defender John Terry in the summer once his contract expires at Stamford Bridge.
Many clubs from across the world will be interested in Terry, it has been reported that the Dubai based club who are managed by JT’s former team mate Dan Petrescu are planning to make an offer for the experienced defender.
The 36-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of the season, and Petrescu thinks the former England captain should keep playing, even if Chelsea do not offer him a new deal.
Petrescu told the Gulf Times:
‘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.’
‘I think he should still play on. As a central defender it shouldn’t be a problem and he is fit, so I’m sure he will play more.’
Terry has played a minimal role for Chelsea this season managing just five appearances in the Premier League.
Petrescu says he is on good terms with Terry, despite admitting they’d fallen out immediately during a Chelsea training session in 1998.
The former Romania international, who also played in the Premier League for Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford City and Southampton, said:
‘Maybe it was because we fought in our first training session. We had a very bad fight.’
‘I can’t take any credit for shaping his career. He made it himself, not me. I was part of a great team with him. All the team was good, not only me.’
