John Terry to United ‘could happen’, says Adrian Durham from TalkSPORT. Terry last played for Aston Villa in the Championship.
If reports from English journalist Adrian Durham from TalkSPORT are to be believe, John Terry could make a sensational move to Old Trafford. The ex-Chelsea player is currently a free agent, having last played for Aston Villa.
He was a part of Aston Villa’s campaign to the Championship’s play-off last season, but couldn’t guide the team to promotion.
John Terry has been a Manchester United supporter since his childhood, but played most of his career for their rivals, Chelsea.
“All Manchester United can go with is free agents, John Terry is exactly that so why wouldn’t Manchester United go for John Terry? He is better than Rojo, of course he is,” Durham said.
“John Terry would get into the Manchester United team ahead of Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Lindelof. Think of the crisis they have got at the back, think about how well Jose Mourinho knows John Terry.
“He is a free agent, it could happen. If Jose Mourinho has thought about it, I can see that happening,” he said.
Terry began his playing career in 1998 after coming through the youth ranks at Chelsea, where he played for 19 years. During his time at the Stamford Bridge, Terry won five Premier League titles and a Champions League title in 2012, when the side beat Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena.
Manchester United have had a quiet transfer window this summer, with the club only making two major signings. Jose Mourinho’s side has dropped six points in their first four Premier League matches so far, which include a 3-0 loss to Tottenham at home.
Manchester United will take on the high-flying Watford on September 15, as the Premier League action returns next week.
