Chelsea captain John Terry is reportedly pondering a lucrative move to the Chinese Super League to work under Gus Poyet at Shanghai Shenhua when his contract at Stamford Bridge expires at the end of the season.
The centre-back has been limited to just seven appearances in all competitions this season due to various injuries, while Antonio Conte has settled on a three-man defence with Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill.
Former Chelsea midfielder Poyet was appointed by Shenhua on Tuesday, and it is believed that he will consider making a move for the ex-England international.
According to the London Evening Standard, Terry is open to the idea but the financial offer will play a major role in his decision, as will Chelsea's stance because the 35-year-old would prefer to stay at the Premier League club.
The report adds that there has not been any indication from Conte that Terry, who has been a Chelsea player since 1998, will be offered a new deal.
