Earlier this week, we reported on how the legend that is John Terry, in an effort to prolong his playing career, was set to move to Russian football.
At the time we expressed our surprise that the 37-year-old had decided upon such an option.
However, it seems that despite being offered a financially lucrative contract, the move might not be going ahead.
Although personal terms have been agreed with Spartak Moscow, the popular tabloid publication, the Mirror is reporting that the Russian media is reporting that the move is on hold.
Seemingly, according to our source, there are concerns, emanating from his family, about JT making the move.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we can understand those concerns.
The on-going war of words between Russia and the UK, which has seen Roman Abramovich denied, for the time being, a visa, doesn’t bode well for the future. Although a year (or two) in Russian football might be culturally stimulating, when there are playing options to consider, it might well be worth stepping back and giving the idea a few more thoughts.
