Chelsea captain John Terry set to become one of the highest paid players in world football with Chinese Super League switch

John Terry is on the verge of sealing a hugely lucrative move to China, according to reports.

The Chelsea captain looks certain to be leaving Stamford Bridge after 18 years in the summer and has seemingly played his last game for the club following his sending off against Sunderland at the weekend.

The 35-year-old has attracted interest from across Europe and has been targeted by numerous Major League Soccer clubs.

But Terry is now said to have made his mind up on a switch to the Chinese Super League.

According to The Sun, he is close to finalising terms with an unnamed club which will make him one of the highest paid players in world football.

Terry visited Shanghai in March as he weighed up a potential move to the Far East and is now ready to put pen-to-paper on a stunning £500,000-a-week deal.

The ex-England skipper would become the latest big-name to make the move to China, following the likes of Gervinho, Alex Teixeira, Jackson Martinez and his former Blues teammate Ramires.

He could link up with his one-time Chelsea boss Phil Scolari at Guangzhou Evergrande or with his old England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson at Shanghai SIPG.
