Sarri open to bringing Terry 'home to help us'

The club's hopes of re-signing defender John Terry have been renewed after the former England captain confirmed that he would not be joining Spartak Moscow in a heartfelt message on his official Instagram account.

Terry is a free agent and has been training occasionally at Chelsea's training ground after spending a season in the Championship with Aston Villa, which remains a possible destination.

Cesc Fabregas, however, has rejoined full training and is fit enough to replace the 22-year-old on the bench, though Sarri said he will be cautious with the Spaniard's recovery.

Sarri, asked whether he would welcome the possibility of adding Terry to his backroom staff, said: "Yes, of course, but the last time I spoke with him, a week ago, he told me he wants to play for another season".

Terry possesses a wealth of experience which would be a useful asset for clubs both home and overseas.

Terry joined Chelsea at the age of 14 and made 717 first-team appearances for the club, winning 15 major trophies.

After fulfilling his desire of playing for another year, Terry will embark on life as a former professional footballer.

And whenever Terry decides to hang up his boots, Sarri says there will always be a place for him at Chelsea.

Chelsea are in action at home to Cardiff City on Saturday but Sarri believes they are still a long way from title contenders despite four wins out of four so far.

"He would be a point of reference for me". His presence alone [would be].

"It's up to him".

"They are an ambitious club and I have been very impressed with their professionalism". He has won everything with the club, so it's up to him. A void was left by his departure and we struggle to imagine any Chelsea fans wouldn't love to see it filled by his return.
