In what would be quite a turn of events, Chelsea legend John Terry could be on the verge of making a momentous return to Stamford Bridge, just a day after a late u-turn on moving to Russian club Spartak Moscow.

The Sun via the Metro state that Chelsea have offered their former skipper a contract to return to the Blues in a coaching capacity within Maurizio Sarri’s first team set up.

John Terry had in fact completed a medical for Spartak Moscow while in Rome, and was all but set to be unveiled as the club’s latest defensive signing – but citing family reasons via his official Instagram account, the Blues legend has decided to remain a ‘free agent’;

After considerable thought, I have decided to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Spartak and wish them and their supporters well for the rest of the season

They are an ambitious club and I have been very impressed with their professionalism. But after assessing this move with my family, we’ve decided this is not the right move for ourselves at this time. Good Luck Spartak.’

Aston Villa have reportedly also put a contract on the table for their former skipper to return and help them plug the gaps in their defence in the Championship – with the Midlands club having a shaky start in mid table after six games.

Terry left Chelsea at the end of the 2016/17 Premier League season with the club at the time opting not to renew his contract. The former Blues defender is believed to want to be Chelsea manager one day, and the Mirror revealed earlier in 2018 that Terry feels if he were in the coaching setup at his former club, his chances of one day being in the top job would be enhanced.

The question is – will he decide to hang up his boots now and become a coach or go back to Villa and help them to achieve promotion to the Premier League?
