A report suggests that John Terry has been offered the chance to return to Chelsea as a coach should he turn down the opportunity to prolong his playing career elsewhere.
Chelsea legend John Terry could reportedly return to the club in a coaching capacity after rejecting the chance to join Spartak Moscow.
The 37-year-old was on the brink of signing for the Russian giants this week, only to pull out of a move at the last minute following consultation with his family.
Terry is now deliberating over whether to continue his playing career elsewhere, potentially at Sporting Lisbon or Aston Villa, or to instead move into the world of coaching.
According to The Sun, Chelsea are keen to bring the ex-England international back to Stamford Bridge to work with the younger players coming through the ranks.
The Blues are said to be willing to give former players a chance, having seen some of their rivals - Liverpool included - do the same in recent times.
